Martha Estefany recognized with CMS Award


Congratulations to Martha Estefany Nunez Ornelas4th year graduate student in Prof. Chris Hill's group for being recognized with a CMS Award! CMS Awards aim to recognize individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the strength of CMS and who have given or are currently giving substantial and excellent contributions to the project and construction of the CMS sub-detectors. 

Estefany’s citation reads forMartha Estefany Nunez Ornelas - For her outstanding contribution to the CSC LS2 testing of the post-refurbishment electronics  and of the new generation trigger mother board. Her contribution was crucial to avoid any delay in the CSC LS2 upgrade that was the main driver of the whole CMS LS2 schedule.”

The CMS Collaboration brings together members of the particle physics community from across the globe in a quest to advance humanity’s knowledge of the very basic laws of our Universe. CMS has over 4000 particle physicists, engineers, computer scientists, technicians and students from around 200 institutes and universities from more than 40 countries.

The collaboration operates and collects data from the Compact Muon Solenoid, one of the general-purpose particle detectors at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider. Collaborators from all over the world helped design and fabricate components of the detector, which were brought to CERN for final assembly. Data collected by CMS are shared with several computing centres via the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid. From there, they are distributed to CMS institutions in over forty countries for physics analysis.

Estefany is an alumnae of the Bridge Program.
