Researcher Connor Natzke Wins 2022 David Swanson Memorial Award
April 11, 2022
Connor Natzke, a PhD student at the Colorado School of Mines, was this year’s recipient of the OSG David Swanson Memorial Award. The memorial was established to honor our late colleage David Swanson who contributed to campus research across the country. Natzke is currently located at TRIUMF, a particle physics laboratory in Vancouver, British Columbia, where he uses OSG services to investigate the strong nuclear force. Natzke attended OSG User School in 2019 and the OSG All-Hands Meeting in 2021, and at both of these events he learned valuable ways to improve his workflow. At the All-Hands Meeting 2022, Natzke spoke about his journey with the OSG Consortium and the impact OSG services have had on his research to date –– including a forty-fold increase in the simulation speed of his project.
