Sara Strandberg has been promoted to Wallenberg Scholar

Sara Strandberg has always had a leaning towards philosophy. She has been drawn to the unknown and driven by a desire to understand the world. Now she is looking for something that might not even exist: the supersymmetric partner of the top quark. If she finds it, she will be able to explain dark matter, and solve several other mysteries of the universe.
