Congratulations Scott Willenbrock! January 30, 2007Posted by gordonwatts in physics, physics life.
Scott was just elected an American Physical Society Fellow:
University of Illinois
Citation: For pioneering work in the understanding of single top quark production at hadron colliders, and for contributions to the understanding of associated production of Higgs and vector bosons as a discovery channel at the Tevatron and LHC.
Scott, who has worked on the theory end of single top production for years was at our little party. I caught him on video talking about his initial work on single top while there (sorry the sound sucks).
Grrr. They sent the announcement out by email before they posted the information to the web site. So I can’t point you to the official web site announcement of the award. I assume a link will appear to the list of fellowship awardees on this page (in the fellowships section). But I can point you to a University of Illinois Cham-bana press release. 🙂 I like how they waited until we found evidence for single top before they gave him the award. 🙂
