Graduate Student Chen Zhou Wins Argonne National Laboratory Fellowship

Friday, April 20, 2012

Second-year physics graduate student Chen Zhou, has won an Argonne ATLAS Analysis Support Center competitive fellowship designed to support ATLAS graduate students to work with, and at, the analysis center at Argonne National Laboratory. Fellows are expected to take part in ATLAS analysis and/or detector activities at ANL. Chen will spend six months at Argonne beginning June 1 2012, working with his advisor, Prof. Mark Kruse, on an analysis of ATLAS data at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) to look for new physics in final states involving multiple high-energy leptons. In addition, Prof. Kruse, Prof. Ayana Arce and Duke senior scientist Dr. Doug Benjamin are setting up a project at Argonne which Chen will help to establish, that will support the development of the next generation of silicon detectors at ATLAS.
