Nhan Tran awarded 2019 Henry Primakoff Award

Former PhD student Nhan Tran has been awarded the 2019 Henry Primakoff Award for Early-Career Particle Physics by the American Physical Society. He is being recognized “for wide-ranging contributions to the Compact Muon Solenoid experiment, including the development of a novel pileup subtraction method at the Large Hadron Collider, and the use of jet substructure for the analysis of high-energy collisions.”

Tran completed his PhD in 2011 for his work on the compact muon solenoid (CMS) experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). He is currently a Wilson Fellow at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory.
