Dr. Adam Lyon is a Scientist at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory and is the Associate Division Head for Systems for Scientific Applications. He is a physicist currently involved with the Muon g-2 experiment which is performing a precision measurement of the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon. Dr. Lyon leads the Scientific Computing Division Systems for Scientific Applications quadrant that focuses on scientific simulations, software for scientific analysis and real-time data acquisition systems.
He received a Bachelor of Science in Physics from North Carolina State University, a Master’s and PhD in Physics from University of Maryland. His expertise in data management systems and large scale data analysis stems from his extensive work on the DØ experiment and leadership of the Fermilab data management group, which developed and supported the SAM data management system for the analysis of data from the Tevatron Run II experiments (CDF and DØ).
