About Elizabeth

Elizabeth has bachelors degrees in astronomy/astrophysics and physics. She completed her master’s degree in physics in 2016 before moving to Geneva, Switzerland. There, she spent four years doing her PhD with the Université libre de Bruxelles and the Compact Muon Solenoid Experiment. Since 2011, she has been an active researcher in the field of muon detection with Gas Electron Multiplier (GEM) detectors, taking a leading role in the installation and commissioning of a series of 144 GEMs as part of the upgrade of the CMS muon system during CERN’s Long Shutdown II. After her PhD, she made the leap from high energy particle physics to fusion and plasma physics – she now works at the DIII-D National Fusion Facility as their first Scientific Outreach Coordinator.
