Belen Salvachua is the Physicist responsible for the Beam Loss
Monitoring system of the LHC at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland.
She earned her Ph.D. degree from University of Valencia,
Spain in 2008, developing real time energy reconstruction algorithms
in the ATLAS Hadronic Tile Calorimeter and exploring
the ATLAS sensitivity to observation of extra-dimension signatures.
She continued these studies at the Argonne National
Laboratory with a Director's Fellowship from 2008 until 2011,
when she was awarded with a CERN Fellowship on accelerator
physics to work on the Large Hadron Collider collimation
system and machine performance. In 2014, Belen became part
of the CERN staff as Engineer in Charge of the operation of the
CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
Benoît Salvant joined CERN in Geneva, Switzerland as a staff
member in 2012, and his task has been the follow up of beam
coupling impedance in all CERN circular accelerators and
became a member of the Super Proton Synchrotron supervising
team. He is currently Chairman of the CERN Impedance
Working Group. He gained professional experience in several
countries and several fields of science and technology and
in 2006 started Ph.D. degree work in accelerator physics with
the Ecole Polytechnique Federale Lausanne, Switzerland and
CERN.
Michael Schenk is now a Senior Fellow at CERN in Geneva,
Switzerland where his main activities lie in developing accelerator
controls applications based on reinforcement learning
within the Operations Group. He earned his Ph.D. degree in
2019 from Ecole Polytechnique Federale Lausanne, Switzerland
for developing a novel Landau damping technique for
beam instability mitigation in circular colliders and completed
postdoctoral work there on machine learning for beam lifetime
prediction.
Matteo Solfaroli joined the LHC hardware commissioning
team at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland in 2007, working
on the technical coordination. He then moved to the Operations
Group in 2009 as CERN staff. As an Engineer in Charge,
he operated the LHC in Run 1 and Run 2, contributing to the
performance optimization. He was also in charge of the recommissioning
of the LHC superconducting circuits. He then
became a machine Physicist in 2020 and will act as LHC machine
coordinator during the Run 3. He graduated in physics
at the University of Rome, Italy.
Rogelio Tomás has been on staff at CERN in the Accelerator
and Beam Physics Group since 2005, working on optics measurement
and design of current and future accelerators. He
received a Ph.D. degree in 2003 from the University of Valencia,
Spain, working on the beam-based measurement of
resonance driving terms. He then moved to the Brookhaven
National Laboratory for postdoctoral work on the optimization
and operation of the Relativistic Heavy ion collider and
held a staff position in the Spanish light source until 2005.
Gianluca Valentino joined the Department of Communications
and Computer Engineering at the University of Malta,
Msida, Malta in 2016 as a Lecturer, where he teaches and conducts
research in machine learning, pattern recognition, and
signal processing. He received a Ph.D. in computer engineering
from the University of Malta in 2013 and subsequently, was
a Marie Curie COFUND postdoctoral fellow in the Accelerator
and Beam Physics Group at CERN.
Frederik Van der Veken moved into the field of accelerator
physics as a Marie Curie COFUND fellow in the Accelerator
and Beam Physics Group at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland
and was a Project Associate with the University of Malta,
Msida, Malta. In 2021 he became a staff member in the same
group where his current research is mainly focused on nonlinear
beam dynamics and collimation commissioning and
optimisation. He earned his Ph.D. degree in 2014 in theoretical
particle physics at the University of Antwerp, Belgium
on the mathematical properties of Wilson Lines in quantum
chromodynamics.
Jörg Wenninger is currently leading the LHC beam operation
team at CERN in Geneva Switzerland He earned his Ph.D. degree
in particle physics with the L3 experiments at LEP at the
University of Geneva, Switzerland in 1992. He then switched
sides and moved from being a beam user to a beam producer in
the Beam Instrumentation and Operations Groups at the SPS,
LEP, and LHC accelerators.
