Congratulations to Dr. Misha Veldhoen from the Utrecht University in the Netherlands, who successfully defended his thesis on "Identified particle yield associated to a high-pT trigger particle at the LHC" on 14 March 2016. His work was done under the supervision of Prof. Thomas Peitzmann (Utrecht University and Nikhef) and Dr. Marco van Leeuwen (Nikhef).

His thesis work has contributed to the understanding of particle production in high-energy hadron collisions and the particle identification algorithms he carried on helped the overall success of the experiment.

We wish Dr. Misha Veldhoen a successful continuation of his career!
