Julien leaves January 28, 2008Posted by dorigo in personal, physics.
Today Julien Donini, for the last four years a member of our CDF group in Padova, left for Grenoble, where he will join the ATLAS group there. I wished him good luck with a good dose of sadness, because he will leave a void. Julien worked side by side with me on the analysis and on other CDF analyses, and it was a very fruitful collaboration. The fact that he is joining ATLAS instead than CMS is really an additional sour pill to swallow: if he had joined a group working in CMS, we could have continued to work together somehow, but this way it will be really impossible – unless we both join some averaging group!
Julien is the main author of the paper I linked in the post below. Without him, that paper would not have seen the light. I owe him for that. I think I repaid him with my friendship, and with a trick or two on data analysis. Ciao Julien, see you at CERN soon!
