Welcome Anna! April 29, 2007Posted by gordonwatts in university.
Anna Gousiou is joining our experimental particle physics group at University of Washington. I’m really looking forward to working with her. I’ve got lots of respect for the rest of the group, don’t get me wrong, but it will be nice to have someone else in the same age at UW! 🙂 She comes to us from Notre Dame, DZERO, and CMS. I believe her plans are to continue working on DZERO and move over to ATLAS, the LHC experiment our group is a member of. Welcome to Seattle, Anna!
We had a lot of amazing candidates go through the interview process. Once we got to our short list it was very hard to decide which people to give the offers to. And thanks to everyone who came out for an interview. It is a lot of work to prepare for one of these thing! And, thanks much to our Dean who made it possible for us to make three offers this year (three!). Two of them have said yes so far — Nikoli who will work on neutrinos and Anna who will work on experimental particle physics. We have one outstanding in astro — I hope they say yes! That would be three people.
