Congratulations to Sasha Rozanov! September 8, 2009Posted by gordonwatts in Marseille, physics life.
Each ear the French Science agency – CNRS – awards silver and gold medal’s to its researchers. Sasha got the silver one this year. This is a big deal – people were coming from all over France (and from CERN) to take part in the party and short symposia held in his honor. It couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy. If you know him, definitely send him congrats!
BTW, that is a picture of Sasha killing his cell phone during the ceremony. I’ve got more dignified pictures in the usual spot.
