Prize Recipient


Jin Huang
Brookhaven National Laboratory


"Double Spin Asymmetry ALT in Charged Pion Production from Deep Inelastic Scattering on a Transversely Polarized 3He Target."


Jin received a B. S. degree from University of Science and Technology of China in 2006. He then went to MIT, and studied under the guidance of Professor William Bertozzi and Dr. Shalev Gilad. While working on his thesis experiment, E06-010 at Jefferson Lab, he twice received the Jefferson Science Associates/Jefferson Lab Graduate Fellowship. Jin is now a postdoctoral fellow at Los Alamos National Laboratory, working on the forward silicon detector upgrade for the PHENIX experiment at Brookhaven National Laboratory, and studying strong interactions through spin observables in polarized proton-proton collisions. He is also serving as co-spokesperson for the E12-11-007 experiment at Jefferson Lab, which will expand his thesis measurements to much higher precision and kinematic coverage.
