LPC Distinguished Researcher


Isobel Rose Ojalvo


Princeton University

What I will be working on:

My current research focuses on probing the nature of Higgs couplings to fermions as well as increasing the potential for discovering new physics with the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) detector on the Large Hadron Collider Ring. My research goal is to continue probing the accuracy of the Standard Model via Higgs decays to Tau Leptons as well as to search for new physics in heavy resonances. I also plan to be deeply involved in upgrades to the CMS detector including studies, planning, installation and commissioning, and am very interested in taking part in upgrades to the CMS tracker. I greatly look forward to exciting times ahead in the field of High Energy Physics.

My role in CMS past and present:

In the last year I have been the convener of the Tau Physics Object Group at CMS which is responsible for Hadronic Tau Identification, Reconstruction and object development.
