Dmitri Denisov re-elected as DZero co-spokesperson
Dmitri Denisov will lead the DZero collaboration for two more years. He was recently re-elected to another term as the collaboration's co-spokesperson.
Fermilab Director Pier Oddone congratulated Denisov and said he was delighted Denisov would continue in the position.
"There was a very large consensus in the collaboration that Dmitri has been doing an excellent job as a spokesperson," said DZero co-spokesperson Stefan Soldner-Rembold.
Soldner-Rembold, who has worked with Denisov as co-spokesperson for the past year, believes that Denisov's broad experience within the collaboration makes him an invaluable asset.
"His detailed knowledge of all aspects of the experiment and his vision of what we should do are very important," Soldner-Rembold said.
Denisov has worked on almost all areas of DZero. He began working with the collaboration when he was a graduate student during the experiment's Run I construction. He has served as a spokesperson for the collaboration since 2006.
Denisov said he would like to continue serving in the leadership role to take advantage of both the chance to work with such talented physicists and the bevy of exciting measurements to come.
"I'm excited by the breadth of our physics program," Denisov said. "We have well over 100 different analyses underway."
Soldner-Rembold, a University of Manchester professor, thinks that his close-knit working relationship with Denisov and their appointments exemplify the collaboration's strength - the joined forces of the Fermilab and university research communities.
"You can't get a sheet of paper between us. We work very closely and we exchange opinions daily on what needs to be done," Soldner-Rembold said. "We complement each other very well, and I'm really happy about Dmitri's re-election."
