ALICE Run Manager (24 Jul - 6 Aug  2023): Michal Broz


Michal Broz is a Physicist from CTU, Prague, and a specialist in ultraperipheral collisions and diffraction. He was convener of the UD PAG for Ultra peripheral collisions from 2016 to 2021 and convener of the PWG-UD from 2019 to 2021. During this period he was a member of the Physics board. In 2020 and 2021, during the critical phase of integration of detectors and final commissioning in preparation for RUN 3, he was FDD System Run Coordinator. Michal has a long-standing implication in operation at P2 as he holds the record of taking the maximum number of Shift Leader shifts in ALICE since SAMS is in place to collect the statistics. Since the beginning of Run 2, he has ensured two Run Manager mandates every year, including the critical Heavy Ion data taking. 

During his mandate, Michal will have the important task to continue preparation for Pb-Pb data taking, to follow-up the weekly software upgrade to integrate the latest components, and ensuring the stability of the system. He will coordinate detector improvements and accesses in parallel with global commissioning with COSMICS, TECHNICAL, and SYNTHETIC runs.
