Young Physicist Lecture on Thu Jun 2nd 4pm @ Helsinki

The Finnish Physical Society awarded the Young Physicist Prize to Ari-Pekka Honkanen for his exceptional Master’s thesis in material physics with topic “X-ray diffraction properties of spherically bent crystal analysers”. Jaana Heikkilä received the Young Physicist Honorary Award for her thesis in the field of particle physics with topic “Searching for degenerate Higgs bosons using a profile likelihood ratio method”.

Now Finnish Young Minds invites both of the laureates to give short lectures about working on their theses as well as shortly about the topics. This is an excellent opportunity to learn how these extraordinary theses were produced as the event is targeted for students who are near the beginning of their thesis project. Everyone is welcome, though!.

The event will be held on

Thursday 2nd of June at 4.15 pm

in Physicum, Kumpula campus, University of Helsinki, class A315 (HIP seminar room).

There will be time for questions and discussion after both of the short lectures. The event will be held in English.

The physics students’ association Resonanssi offers coffee, tea and some small snacks.
