Javier Montejo receives the ATLAS Thesis Award

Javier Montejo, now a CERN fellow, has received the ATLAS Thesis award for his thesis done at IFAE under the supervision of Aurelio Juste. Javier is the first student at IFAE that has been awarded with this prize.

The title of his work is: "Search for new physics in ttbar final states with additional heavy-flavor jets with the ATLAS detector" and he defended it on June 2015. In a few words, Javier's dissertation presents three analyses that address the instability of the Higgs mass from different perspectives and that constitute the most sensitive searches to date in their respective channels. He has also contributed to the performance of the ATLAS hadronic calorimeter.

The ATLAS Thesis Awards started in 2010 and recognize young postdoctoral candidates who have contributed to the experiment in all areas, in the context of a PhD thesis. A committee judges candidates on their work in all areas of ATLAS. Only 5 awards are given every year among more than 100 theses.

The ATLAS Thesis Prize Awardees received their recognition during the last ATLAS Week.

Also during the ATLAS week, Silvia Fracchia, PhD student at the IFAE-ATLAS group, received a recognition for the ATLAS PhD Grant she was awarded on 2014.
