Dr. Mehdi Meziane, a postdoc in Prof. Haiyan Gao's Medium Energy Physics Group has been selected as a Jefferson Science Associates (JSA) Promising Young Scientist. The JSA Promising Young Scientist program has the goals of supporting junior nuclear physicists and promoting the effective dissemination of exciting new developments in nuclear physics. Dr. Meziane joined Prof. Gao's research group in June 2011. He has been working on a new experiment on a precise measurement of the proton charge radius at Jefferson Lab Hall B and also a new 12-GeV program probing the three-dimensional structure of the nucleon in momentum space. As a JSA Promising Young Scientist, Dr. Meziane will be giving a physics colloquium at the Idaho State University.
