Caleb James Smith
Grad Student, CMS
Baylor University, Texas
My name is Caleb, and I grew up in Colorado. I am a physics graduate student form Baylor University in Waco, Texas. I work on CMS. I have spent time at CERN working on the CMS hadron calorimeter (HCAL). Now I work on a SUSY analysis searching for supersymmetric top quarks. Outside of physics, I enjoy playing ultimate frisbee, playing different instruments, and swing dancing.
It can been challenging to move to different places frequently, which many people in physics can relate to. Wherever I go, I believe that God is with me as He was with Joshua (see Joshua 1:9 below). I am a sinner saved by God’s grace, and I trust in Jesus for salvation.
I would like to be involved in the Fermilab FSPA community. I enjoy getting to know people from different experiments, different fields of work, and different places. I think it is important to both communicate physics to a wider community and to listen to people from other areas of work.
