ALICE looking into the future

It has been a long road for the ALICE LS1 team that now focuses on re-commissioning and calibration of the detector before the start of Run 2.

ALICE Thesis Award

by Paul Kuijer. Published: 16 February 2015

Every year the ALICE Thesis Award Committee scrutinizes about a dozen PhD theses, which are nominated by the students, their supervisors, and a senior
researcher from an independent group. The committee grades the theses for relevance to ALICE's goals, achieved results, excellence of work, originality/innovation of the method or measurement, and didactic quality. To be awarded, the thesis has to rate high in all these aspects.

I started working at ALICE as a summer student in 2007, during my master's studies at Comenius University in Bratislava. I did my PhD there as well, which was dedicated to the study of baryon number transport, i.e. analysis of anti-baryon to baryon ratios.

I joined ALICE more than ten years ago and have followed all the exciting phases up to the  commissioning of the detector, with my group actively involved in the construction of the Silicon Strip Detector. During my previous experience at the TRIUMF laboratory in Vancouver, where I worked both for my M.Sc. and Ph.D. thesis, I have been introduced to the topic of medium modification of particle properties which I am now continuing with ALICE.
