PPRC NeXT Student secures prestigious PhD Grant

New Connections Between Experiment and Theory Institute

Congratulations to Mr Declan Millar, a NExT PhD Student on a joint QMUL-Southampton PhD programme on the project `Search for Resonant Production of Top Pairs at ATLAS', supervised by Dr Lucio Cerrito (QMUL PPRC) and Prof Stefano Moretti (Southampton HEP group), who has secured a very prestigious ATLAS PhD Grant.

This grant will support Declan's stay at CERN on Long Term Attachment (LTA) to the ATLAS experiment for the academic year 2014/15, followed by additional support for a further year back in the UK. This award is also a clear endorsement by the experimental world of the importance of the NExT Institute vision of embedding theorists within data analysis.
