Jared Vanasse successfully defended his thesis “Parity-Violation in Neutron Deuteron Scattering in Pionless Effective Field Theory” on June 7. This work involved extended calculations combining the weak interaction and strong force to describe parity violating observables in low energy neutron reactions. Barry Holstein served as Jared’s thesis advisor. Congratulations, Jared.
Also lets include congratulations to Barry Holstein. Barry indicated that Jared (and TJ last month) will be his last Ph.D. students. Barry has long been a successful mentor and colleague and these two theses are a nice way to finish as a Ph.D advisor.
