First of a series of 30 min talks by employers and physics graduates. Aimed at stage 3 and 4 undergraduates and upwards. All welcome.
We are delighted to welcome two past graduates from Ronan McNulty’s research group. We will show a mini 10-minute movie of Ronan & the two speakers driving around CERN. Note the movie was filmed by Will Goodbody of RTE. After, the speakers will give a talk on their time at UCD & CERN. Refreshments to follow talk in the common room! Careers literature from IOP available.
Dr Dermot Moran -
In 2007 I became a PhD student at the University College Dublin particle physics group working on the LHCb experiment at CERN. In 2011 I completed my thesis “Central exclusive production with dimuon ﬁnal states at LHCb” and took up a research associate position at the University of Manchester. There I continued my work on exclusive production at LHCb collaborating closely with the UCD particle physics group. In 2013 I moved to the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid particle physics group and began working on the CMS experiment at CERN. Since then I have been involved in high mass Higgs bosons searches.
Dr James Keaveney - James is a Pegasus Marie-Curie fellow at Vrije Universiteit Brussels. He completed his PhD at UCD in 2011 with a thesis entitled "A measurement of the Z boson cross section at LHCb". Following his PhD he took a post-doctoral position in VUB Brussels working on the CMS experiment at the LHC. His current research interests focus on the search for rare processes involving top quarks and the relevenace of these processes to new theories of fundamental physics.
