PhD Theses

Graduate students benefit from the very collaborative atmosphere in the Penn group, with advice from all the faculty and postdocs in the ATLAS group, and of course the other graduate students in the group.  Graduate students have a lot of independence to choose what they study.  The acknowledgements in the PhD theses give a good description of the Penn ATLAS group:)

  • Six of our graduate students have won ATLAS Outstanding Thesis award, the most of any US institution!  ATLAS recognizes 3-6 graduate students each year from the over 1000 graduate students in the collaboration.
    • Elodie Resseguie (2019), Khilesh Mistry (2019), Kurt Brendlinger (2016), Jamie Saxon (2014), John Alison (2013), Mike Hance (2011).
  • Four of our graduate students have also won the Springer thesis award, which brings together a selection of the very best PhD theses from around the world across the physical sciences.
    • Elodie Resseguie (2020), Kurt Brendlinger (2018), John Alison (2015), Mike Hance (2013).
