Bye & Good Luck, Aran July 9, 2008

Posted by gordonwatts in D0, University of Washington.

Celabrating...Well, it’s happened. Aran has been with the University of Washington for the last 5 years – as a post-doc. And as of July 1st, he has moved on. Without him UW’s presence at D0 would be much less. He has been UW’s public face there – maintaining the Level 3 DAQ system, and running the single top group during our evidence paper. He has also been one of the best student mentors I’ve ever seen.

But fear not — he has definitely not left particle physics — he is now a professor at the University of Rochester!! I find this particularly cool because that is where I went for graduate school myself.

Best of luck!!

Congrats. Great school for him and you cannot beat Pittsford and Brighton schools for his kids. Great faculty with some folks a few years away from moving on – Ferbel, Hagen, Douglass, Thorndike, etc.

UR should get much press with the LHC starting this summer as that is where the Higgs was founded.

Yes to all you say, Joe. He will be joining CMS (or perhaps he already has). I hope he is going to have a blast!

Congrats to Aran from me too! And I second all that you said, having been lucky enough to work with him both on the DAQ side of things during my numerous shifts and the single top side of things. The people in Rochester are lucky to have him.
