Connor Awe, Best National Laboratory Collaboration by NNSA

Graduate student Connor Awe was awarded Best National Laboratory Collaboration by the NNSA for his work at Oak Ridge National Laboratory last summer. Awe’s research focused on searches for coherent elastic neutrino-nucleus scattering (CEvNS) and evaluation of new neutrino detector designs as part of the COHERENT collaboration. Fellow graduate student Jay Runge accepted the award on Awe’s behalf at the University Program Review while he was away presenting a poster at Neutrino 2018. Awe’s summer internship at ORNL was funded as part of his Consortium for Nonproliferation Enabling Capabilities (CNEC) fellowship. More information about CNEC can be found here.
