Easwar will relocate for 9 months to the Irene-Joliot Curie Laboratory in Paris where he will develop new detectors for operation at the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland.   These detectors will be used to search for new physical processes that may transform our understanding of elementary particles, the building blocks of nature.

Easwar was selected for the Sigma Xi Outstanding Graduate Researcher Award last year.

Congratulations, Easwar!
