Dr. Paul Eugenio

Professor, Ph.D., University of Massachusetts/Amherst, 1998


Paul Eugenio received the PhD degree of Particle Physics from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst in 1998, and the BS and MS degrees in Physics from the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth in 1992 and 1994, respectively. He then joined the Medium Energy Particle Physics Group at Carnegie Mellon University as a Research Physicist. In the fall of 2001, Dr. Eugenio joined the faculty in the Experimental Nuclear Physics Group of Florida State University where he is currently an Assistant Professor for the Department of Physics.

Dr. Eugenio's research interests are in the areas of particle physics, in particular, on expanding our understanding of the non-perturbative regime of quantum chromodynamics (QCD). While at FSU, Paul Eugenio devoted his efforts to search for meson states, such as, exotics, hybrids, and glueballs, which are incompatible with the Standard Quark Model. He has contributed to an analyses of meson states produced via proton-antiproton annihilations at rest, and he has directed undergraduate students in analyzing meson states from pion-proton interactions at 18 GeV/c. At Jefferson Lab, there is a program to build a state-of-the-art hermetic spectrometer (Hall D) to detect the production and decays of mesons produced in photon-induced reactions. Paul Eugenio has developed a generalized Monte Carlo event generator, a detector simulations package, and a Monte Carlo framework for understanding the performance of key aspects of the proposed Hall D detector systems.

He is a member of the American Physical Society; Sigma Xi, The Scientific Research Society; and Sigma Pi Sigma, The National Physics Honor Society.
