Prof. Kotwal to serve as Chair of the Nominating Committe within APS Division

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

Prof. Ashutosh Kotwal has recently been elected to serve as the Chair of the Nominating Committee for the Division of Particles and Fields of the American Physical Society.  Prof. Kotwal writes, "This committee serves as the Search Committee within the Division of particles and fields, to discuss potential candidates for all the other official positions in the division.  My role as chair will be to conduct the search for the other officers of the Division and generate a short list of candidates.  I  will present this short list to the entire community of particle physicists, who will then vote to elect the other officers."

Earlier this year Kotwal was named the co-leader on a research group at the ATLAS experiment at CERN. Prof. Kotwal, who has been heavily involved in the prominent high energy physics experiments around the globe, also recently co-published a paper in the journal, Physical Letters B.  The paper, which focuses on data from the ATLAS experiment at CERN, is called, “Search for high mass dilepton resonances in pp collisions at √s = 7 TeV with the ATLAS experiment,” and was published in May.

Professor Kotwal also recently published a paper in Physical Review Letters in April. Read more about it here.
