CTAMOP member and EPSRC Fellow Dermot Green was awarded the 2017 ICPEAC ‘Sheldon Datz prize’ for Outstanding Young Scientist attending ICPEAC (International Conference on Photonic, Electronic and Atomic Collisions) one of the two flagship international conferences in atomic physics.

The prize recognises Dermot’s leading work developing many-body theory of positron and positronium interactions with atoms and molecules. It was awarded following nomination and selection by the ICPEAC international committee prior to the recent conference in Cairns, Australia. Dermot received the award from the ICPEAC International Chair Hossein Sadeghpour (ITAMP, Harvard) in the ‘Sheldon Datz prize’ plenary session of the conference, where he presented a special report on his work.
