Congratulations to Arghya Chatterjee who successfully defended his PhD
thesis at VECC, Kolkata on March 9, 2019. His thesis title is: "Study of
conserved quantities and their correlations in the RHIC Beam Energy Scan
The February 2019 STAR Newsletter focuses mainly on the startup of the
experiment for Run 19, and a thoughtful look at cosmic events in the
upgraded TPC, plus some public outreach.
Congratulations to Dr. Lang He who has successfully defended his Ph.D.
thesis at Purdue. His thesis was titled: “Measurement of D0
directed flow and elliptic flow in Au+Au Collisions at
The December 2018 edition of the STAR Newsletter recaps the past year's
progress, plus some recent STAR meetings, and our spokespersons catch us up
on schedules and personnel for the upcoming Run 19.
Congratulations to Dr. Kathryn Meehan who has successfully completed her
Ph.D. at UC Davis. Her thesis was titled: "Pion Production in 4.5 GeV Au +
Au Collisions from the STAR Fixed-Target Pilot Run".
Congratulations to Dr. Zaochen Ye who has successfully defended his Ph.D.
thesis at UIC. His thesis was titled: "Measurements of Upsilon Production
in p+p, p+Au and Au+Au Collisions at √sNN=200 GeV
with the STAR Experiment".
We remember Father Tom McShane in the
October 2018 STAR Newsletter, and hear about the iTPC and activities at
the experiment hall, plus Collaborators in the headlines, and a perspective
on Hard Probes 2018.
We remember Father
McShane of Creighton University who collaborated with us for over 20
years during the installation and early running STAR. We send our thoughts
and prayers to his family, friends and colleagues.
