PhD candidate Javier Acevedo won the prize for Best Presentation in Theoretical Physics at the 59th Winter Nuclear & Particle Physics Conference (wnppc.triumf.ca/2022). 

Javier's talk entitled Discovering composite dark matter with the Migdal effect, detailed a new search for heavy dark composite states, using low-energy ionization of atoms inside the composite dark matter. 

Some recent publications which Javier co-authored on composite dark matter physics include:

• Acevedo et al 2022 PRD 105 (2022) 2, arxiv.org/abs/2108.10889
• Acevedo et al 2021 PRD 103 (2021) 12, arxiv.org/abs/2012.10998

Javier is part of the Queen's High Energy and Astroparticle Theory (QHEAT) group, supervised by J. Bramante.
