Mary Hall Reno, Erich Funke Professor in the Department of Physics at the University of Iowa, is a theoretical particle physicist who focuses on neutrino interactions and their detection. Her work has applications in laboratory experiments, for example, at a future Forward Physics Facility at the Large Hadron Collider, and in simulations that model extensive air shower signals from cosmic neutrinos for space-based experiments. Reno, who served as chair of the UI Department of Physics and Astronomy from 2009 to 2014, is a Fellow of the American Physical Society. She was a member and former chair of the APS Committee on the Status of Women in Physics.
