We are happy to announce that in February 2015 Daisuke Watanabe from the University of Tsukuba, Japan, successfully defended his PhD thesis. The topic of his work is "Measurements of π0-jet correlations in sqrt(s) = 7 TeV pp collisions and in sqrt(s_NN) = 2.76 TeV central Pb-Pb collisions at the ALICE experiment" and it was done under the supervision of Prof. Tatsuya Chujo and with Prof. Yasuo Miake and Prof. Shinichi Esumi as his co-supervisors.
