Rituparna Kanungo

Back in 2012 Ritu with the assistance of Destination Halifax placed a bid to host the 2014 conference. Halifax lost the bid to Darmstadt, Germany. Not to be outdone she bid for and unfortunately lost the right to host the larger 2016 Nuclei in the Cosmos conference to Niigata, Japan. Still determined to host a conference in her field she bid for the 2016 DREB conference and won. 150 delegates from around the world met in Halifax in July to discuss the latest experimental and theoretical research and developments in nuclear reactions with exotic nuclei.
