Young Physicist from Syracuse University Receives Jefferson Lab’s 2014 Thesis Prize
NEWPORT NEWS, VA. – A young researcher, who worked on software development and data analysis for a major physics experiment conducted at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility, has received an award for the thesis he wrote about his efforts.
The Thesis Prize was established in 1999 by the Southeastern Universities Research Association and is now one of many projects supported by the JSA Initiatives Fund Program, which was established by Jefferson Science Associates to support programs, initiatives and activities that further the scientific outreach, and promote the science, education and technology missions of Jefferson Lab in ways that complement its basic and applied research focus. Initiatives Fund awards are for those projects that benefit the lab user community and that leverage commitments of others.
