Shir’s research work is focussed on the ZDC upgrade. She implemented many of the technical requirements for preparation of the instrumentation, and works on the detector prototype especially the electromagnetic module.
Itai is the lab engineer. He completed his PhD in bio-physics with Mario Feingold, before joining the group. His research is in the characterization of radiation damage to quartz/fused silica.
Yftach completed his BSc, including a project within the group. He presently works on developing machine learning algorithims especially for tracking applications, and data acquistion/analysis for the ZDC.
Raveendra was a post-doc in the group, mostly working on ZDC calibrations and tests. After his time with us, Raveendra joined the cosmic muon group at CP3.
Yuval’s MSc was on development of ZDC prototypes, and exploring possible use cases for the ZDC in BSM searches.
