Our PhD student Joey Reiness completed his PhD and defended it in a remote viva this week. Congratulations to him! His thesis is titled Pieces of the Higgsaw and its abstract is below. The full thesis is also attached.

Following a recent measurement of the T2K Collaboration, in a Nature News and Views article Silvia Pascoli and Jessica Turner have discussed the question whether CP violation in the lepton sector can be a key ingredient to the matter-antimatter asymmetry in our Universe:

Some of the ressources of the IPPP Computer Cluster are donated to the GridPP support for simulating the dynamics of COVID-19 proteins through the distributed computing project Folding@Home.

One of our Durham Data intense science CDT PhD students Joe Bullock co-authored an overview of recent studies using ML/AI to tackle many aspects of the COVID-19 crisis at different scales.
