Professor Shelton received her PhD from MIT in 2006, after undergraduate work at Princeton. She held postdoctoral appointments at Rutgers, Yale, and Harvard before arriving at the University of Illinois in 2014, and has won awards from MIT and from the LHC Theory Initiative. Shelton works on a broad range of topics in particle physics beyond the Standard Model, with particular interests in dark matter, top quarks, and the Higgs boson.
