Speaker biography: Maaike Limper has a master in Physics from the University of Amsterdam, and a PhD in Particle Physics. As a part of her PhD and sub-sequent post-doc she worked on ATLAS, one of the detectors that measures events produced by the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Geneva. During her work as an ATLAS physicist, Maaike participated in the analysis of the first LHC data and was involved in developing some of the ATLAS data-taking conditions databases. As of January 2012 she works full-time for the IT department of CERN as an Oracle funded Openlab fellow.
