For seminal contributions to the theoretical understanding of jet substructure and to the application of that understanding to the analysis of experimental data.

Andrew J. Larkoski is currently an Assistant Project Scientist at UCLA. He earned his Ph.D. from Stanford University and has held research appointments at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University, and was a Visiting Assistant Professor at Reed College and Acting Assistant Professor at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. Andrew is a leading expert on particle physics and especially of jets at hadron colliders, and has won the LHC Theory Initiative Fellowship and the Wu-Ki Tung Award for Early-Career Research on QCD. He is also the author of two undergraduate textbooks, Elementary Particle Physics: An Intuitive Introduction (Cambridge 2019) and Quantum Mechanics: A Mathematical Introduction (Cambridge 2023).
