The annual CMS Achievement Awards 2019 for CMS researchers (physicists and engineers) are proposed for significant contributions and exceptional performance
Dr. Merijn van de Klundert, who received his Ph.D. at UAntwerpen in 2018 and now works for DESY in Germany, received his award for his several year long critical contributions to the success of the CASTOR experiment, spanning many activities including multiple detector installations, integration in the CMS DAQ/DCS/Trigger systems, commissioning and operation, calibration and performance , as well as leading contributions to data analysis and the overall CASTOR physics program.
The Particle Physics group congratulates Merijn for this recognition of his great dedication to the CMS exepriment.
