MIT’s Laboratory for Nuclear Science (LNS) has awarded its 2016 Lee Grodzins Postdoctoral Fellows Lecture Award to Heavy Ion researcher Dennis Perepelitsa. At the time of the competition, Perepelitsa was a Goldhaber Fellow at Brookhaven National Laboratory. As he presents the Grodzins Prize Lecture, he has begun a faculty position at the University of Colorado, Boulder.
His prize lecture was entitled “Novel probes of the proton wavefunction through collisions with nuclei” and discussed how collisions with nuclei have provided unexpected insight into the correlations between the longitudinal momentum and transverse spatial configurations in the proton wavefunction, drawing a connection between heavy ion and hadron structure physics. This lecture will discuss data taken in heavy ion running at LHC and at RHIC.
We were pleased to honor Lee Grodzins’ 90th birthday at this lecture.
Tatsuya Kikawa delivered his colloquium "Quest for new CP violation by neutrino oscillation and neutron EDM measurement" on October 2, 2017.
Dr. Kikawa received his Ph.D. from Kyoto University and currently works at TRIUMF in Vancouver, Canada

Jie Zhao of Purdue University delivered his colloquium "Search for the Chiral Magnetic Effect in Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collisions" on September 10, 2018. He discussed the current state of the experimental search for the CME with a particular focus on recent progresses in the understanding of the background issues
