Brief Career Biography
Professor Bell completed her PhD in 2001 at the University of Melbourne. She held a postdoctoral appointment in the Theoretical Astrophysics Group at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab), USA from 2001–2004, followed by a Sherman Fairchild Prize Fellowship with the Kellogg Radiation Laboratory and the Theoretical Astrophysics group at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) from 2004–2006. She commenced a continuing appointment at the University of Melbourne in 2007.
She was a Chief Investigator in the ARC Centre of Excellence for Particle Physics at the Terascale (CoEPP) and currently leads the Theory Program of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Dark Matter Particle Physics.
Professor Bell is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and the Australian Institute of Physics. She was awarded the Nancy Millis Medal (2020) by the Australian Academy of Science for her work on dark matter and neutrino physics. She has received various other awards including the Bragg Gold Medal from the Australian Institute of Physics (2001), the Alvin Tollestrup Award for Postdoctoral Research at Fermilab (2004), a Sherman Fairchild Fellowship at Caltech (2004) and an ARC Future Fellowship (2012).
