Here’s another GDHS alumnus for the Hall of Fame. Anyone remember Nigel Lockyer?
“Lockyer received his PhD in particle physics at Ohio State University, did a postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford University and then became a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, where he began teaching in 1984. His career since then has been a busy one, including stints as head of a large particle physics experiment at Fermilab, near Chicago, called CDF (which co-discovered the top quark); Chair of the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) Grant Selection Committee; Chair of the Canada Foundation for Innovation’s review committee; and member on a host of professional committees in the US.”
