Daniel Durnford wins presentation award at the Canadian Association for Physics (CAP)

NEWS-G collaborator and PhD candidate Daniel Durnford (University of Alberta) won first place for best oral presentation by a student within the Particle Physics Division at the (online) 2020 Canadian Association of Physics (CAP) conference. The conference was held by video teleconferencing and was well attended, providing a much-needed moment of connection for a community that looks forward to this annual reunion of physicists.

Daniel’s talk was about the recent dark matter campaign with methane gas at the Laboratoire Souterrain de Modane (LSM) and the ongoing calibration and analysis efforts.

Daniel was also a finalist for the best overall student presentation at the conference.

Congratulations Daniel, and thank you for all your hard work on NEWS-G!
