Congratulations to the CMS collaboration for an exciting two weeks. A research paper with lead authors Dr. Phil Baringer, grad student Danny Noonan, and Postdoc Dr. Gabriele Benelli on measurements of the top quark was featured in the CERN Courier for Feb. 24. Meanwhile, Prof. Alice Bean has been selected as a Jefferson Science Fellow for 2014. The prestigious JSF program is administered by the National Academies and supported through a partnership between the U.S. academic community, professional scientific societies, the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). Jefferson Science Fellows spend one year on assignment at the U.S. Department of State or USAID as science advisors on foreign policy issues. More on the program can be found at this link.
