Michelson Postdoctoral Prize – May 2 – May 6, 2011

The Michelson Postdoctoral Prize winner for 2011 is Lindley Winslow, a postdoctoral fellow at MIT working on the Double Chooz reactor neutrino experiment. Prior to that she worked on the KamLand reactor neutrino experiment as a graduate student at UC Berkeley where she obtained her PhD in 2008. Lindley has proposed an innovative particle detector based on quantum dots that is currently in development and that may be used to look for neutrinoless double beta decay. She is a founding member on DAEDALUS, a new experiment that aims to look for CP violation in the neutrino sector.
The Michelson Postdoctoral Prize lectures are a highlight of our academic events calendar. This year promises to be no exception.
