Congratulations to Dr. Isaac Upsal who successfully defended his Ph.D.
thesis at the Ohio State University on April 4th. His thesis title is:
"Global Polarization of Lambda Baryons in the STAR Beam Energy Scan"
Congratulations to Dr. John Campbell who successfully defended his Ph.D.
thesis at the Ohio State University. His thesis title is: "Azimuthally
sensitive pion femtoscopy in ultra-central U+U and Au+Au collisions at
We get to know another of our new collaborating institutions in the February 2018 edition of the STAR Newsletter. Contributions also
focus on recent activities surrounding Run 18, from commissioning new
detectors to blinding analysis procedures, as well as recapping discussions
on these topics at the recent STAR Collaboration Meeting.
Congratulations to Leszek Kosarzewski who successfully defended his Ph.D.
thesis at the Warsaw University of Technology. His thesis title is: "Study
of quarkonium production in relativistic proton-proton collisions in the
Congratulations to Toshihiro Nonaka who successfully defended his PhD
thesis at University of Tsukuba. His thesis title is: "The 6th order
cumulant of net-proton distribution at 200GeV Au+Au collisions".
We remember STAR Collaborator Prof. Hongfang Chen, and look back on 2017 in
2017 edition of the STAR Newsletter. Also included are a brief recap of
the Analysis Meeting, including the Collaboration photo we took during the
event, and some fellow Collaborators in the headlines.
Congratulations to Dr. Daniel L. Olvitt, Jr on successfully defended his
PhD thesis at Temple University. His thesis title is: "Measurement of the
Longitudinal Double Spin Asymmetry for Dijet Production in Polarized
Proton+Proton Collisions at √s = 510 GeV at STAR".
Congratulations to Dr. Ting Lin on successfully defended his PhD thesis at
Indiana University. His thesis title is: "Longitudinal double-spin
asymmetries for di-jet production at intermediate pseudorapidity in
polarized pp collisions at √s = 200 GeV".
