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.
Congratulations to Niseem Magdy Abdelwahab Abdelrahman who successfully
defended his PhD thesis at Stony Brook University. His thesis title is:
"Beam Energy and Collision System Dependence of Anisotropic Flow and Its
Congratulations to Dzmitry Makatun who successfully defended his PhD thesis
at Czech Technical University. His thesis title is: "Distributed data
processing in High Energy Physics".
2018 edition of the STAR Newsletter brings our spokespersons' report on
general goings on for the Collaboration, and we get a junior's perspective
on the FMS disassembly along with a recap of Summer Sunday.
Congratulations to Jincheng Mei who successfully defended his PhD thesis at
Shandong University. His thesis title is: "Measurement of Transverse Spin
Transfer to Lambda and anti-Lambda in Transversely Polarized Proton-Proton
Collisions at RHIC-STAR".
