Dr Sebastian Trojanowski from the Particle Astrophysics group has been placed among the 15 finalists of the 21. edition of the scientific award “Nagroda Naukowa Polityki” organised by the major Polish weekly “Polityka”. Scientific Awards of “Polityka” are scholarships for young Polish scientists to encourage their work in different scientific disciplines. Dr Trojanowski is this year’s finalists in physics.
In his research, Dr Trojanowski focuses on (astro)particle physics and dark matter studies. He is a theory co-initiator of the new far-forward experimental program at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, soon to be started with the FASER experiment. Congratulations to Sebastian and all the finalists! https://www.polityka.pl/tygodnikpolityka/nauka/2134356,1,nagrody-naukowe-oto-finalisci-21-edycji.read
On 2 October 2021 our colleague Dr Marek Walczak (research group 1) returned from a scientific trip to the National Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN) in Genoa, Italy. He spent three intensive weeks there working on testing the veto Photo Detector Modules and developing software for analyzing data from the tested setups. All this time he collaborated with other INFN scientists from Gemma Testera’s group: Bianca Bottino, Alessio Caminata, Simone Copello and Stefano Davini.
In June 2021, one of our PhD students, Iftikhar Ahmad (research group 4 led by Dr Masayuki Wada), moved to Italy for a long-term fellowship. At the INFN (National Institute for Nuclear Physics) in Turin, Iftikhar is working with a team of scientists led by Dr. Manuel Dionisio da Rocha Rolo.
