Wright Lab graduate student Ako Jamil has been awarded honorable mention for the competitive Graduate Instrumentation Research Award (GIRA) for his project “Development of a Low Radioactive Large Area SiPM Array for Ton-scale 0νββ” (advisor David Moore).

According to the GIRA website, “The GIRA program aims to encourage and facilitate greater involvement of physics graduate students in significant instrumentation development, to boost recognition of instrumentation work as a vital part of PhD training, to foster growth of future HEP instrumentation experts in the US, and to strengthen university-lab ties on instrumentation development. GIRA has been established by the Coordination Panel for Advanced Detectors (CPAD), a standing committee of The Division of Particles and Fields of the American Physical Society.”
