South African PhD student giving a plenary talk at CERN during the ATLAS Week

We are proud to see Humphry Tlou, one of our South African PhD students, giving a plenary talk at CERN during the ATLAS Week. Humphry, who is currently the Running Coordinator of the Tile Calorimeter of ATLAS, gave a summary of this component of the experiment. Humphry spoke on behalf of the TileCal community. This includes a summary of the maintenance performed on all systems as we are currently in the Long Shutdown 2, work on calibration and performance, and the preparation towards the new software release that will be used during Run 3. Certification of the electronics is performed, where the detector is performing with very low level of masked channels.

Below are some pictures of Humphry presenting at the main auditorium of CERN.
