Evan Rule, a former graduate student in the UC Berkeley Physics Department has been awarded the 2024 Dissertation Award in Nuclear Physics by the American Physical Society (APS). Dr. Rule conducted his graduate research at UC Berkeley under the supervision of Prof. Wick Haxton who is a faculty member in the UC Berkeley Physics Department, and a Faculty Senior Scientist in LBNL’s Nuclear Science Division.
Dr. Rule, who is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Network for Neutrinos, Nuclear Astrophysics, and Symmetries (N3AS), received the award “For the timely development of a flexible and fully general effective theory of muon-to-electron conversion. The formulation establishes an interface between the nuclear and particle physics components of this process that will encourage coordination between the two communities.“
