2022 Winner | Lab 2022 2022 Winner Speaker Winner Lab Finalist Emerging Talents (Falling Walls Lab)

Dorothea vom Bruch is a tenured research scientist with the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) at the Particle Physics Center in Marseille (CPPM). She is a passionate physicist, driven by two major questions: What does particle physics teach us about the laws of nature? More explicitly, is lepton flavor universal, as predicted by the current theory? And how can we use modern computing architectures, such as graphics processing units (GPUs), to handle the huge data stream produced by particle physics experiments? To test lepton universality, she has worked on three different experiments: Pienu (TRIUMF, Canada), Mu3e (PSI, Switzerland) and now LHCb (CERN,Switzerland). At the last two, she has developed real-time selection systems processed entirely on GPUs, therefore best exploiting current computing hardware to face the big data challenge in particle physics. Dorothea vom Bruch has received several awards, including a 2021 European Research Council Starting Grant.
