ISRAEL (candidate)

Daniel Lellouch (1957-2019)

After immigrating to Israel, Daniel Lellouch joined the OPAL group at the Weizmann Institute.  He was in charge of the data acquisition and monitoring of the Hadron Poletip detector, and participated to the analyses in search for neutralinos. 

When the decision of building the LHC was taken, he was deeply involved in the design and tests of the Thin Gap Chambers technology for the forward muon trigger. Daniel is currently active in the TGC DAQ and Monitoring, together with the design of the upgraded forward muon trigger system for the SLHC. He also participates to the data analysis of the XENON experiment, a direct search for Dark Matter at LNGS, Italy.

Daniel believes in science outreach, and is a popular lecturer in HEP and astonomy. As an amateur astronomer, he established the astronomy club at his home institution, the Weizmann Institute. He also brought to Israel the idea of "Science on the tap", an evening during which several dozens of students and researchers invest bars downtown for an informal presentation of their work. Daniel joined IPPOG in 2014 as the first delegate from Israel in IPPOG.

It is with great sadness that we have to inform that Daniel Lellouch passed away on February 2019.
