John

Here at CV we continuously strive for total perfection. You all have had enough of us theorists telling you how measurements are made, how experiments are built and conducted, blah, blah, blah, blah. We theorists can bluff our way through most of that, but as Julianne put it – it’s nice to know what’s in the sausage. So, we are bringing in a new contributor. John Conway is a bonafide experimenter at the University of California, Davis. We were fellow post-docs at the University of Wisconsin (where John searched for the Higgs at the ALEPH detector at the LEP accelerator at CERN), after he graduated from Chicago. Like all great physicists, he escaped the midwest and moved to California. John now works on the CDF detector at the Tevatron at Fermilab (still searching for the Higgs) and the CMS detector at the LHC at CERN (where Higgs searches/measurements will continue). Within my household, he is best known for introducing me to epoisse, which has become a lifelong addiction. Welcome John!
