Dr. Regina Rameika was a member of the international team of scientists who discovered the tau neutrino by making the first observation of its interactions with matter using the Direct Observation of the Nu Tau, or DONuT experiment at Fermilab. Regina served as project manager for building the Main Injector Neutrino Oscillation Search, or MINOS, experiment at Fermilab and headed the Fermilab Neutrino Division from 2014 to 2016.
Gina has worked on advancing plans for DUNE since the 2000s, many years before the experiment obtained its official name. Since then, Regina has served in a variety of positions within the DUNE collaboration, and, as the construction coordinator, was instrumental in the success of the single-phase ProtoDUNE detector at CERN. For the past two years, Regina held the position of resource coordinator within the DUNE collaboration, overseeing finances and staffing, among other duties. Since April 2021, Regina assumed the role of co-spokesperson for DUNE.
