Tulika Bose

Tulika Bose. Profile

Tulika Bose is an Associate Professor of Physics at Boston University and has just finished a two-year term as the Trigger Coordinator for the CMS experiment. She received her B.A. from Cambridge University where she worked as an undergraduate on the measurement of the W mass at the OPAL experiment at CERN. Her Ph.D. research at Columbia University focused on a search for Bs oscillations at D0 and led to the first double-sided bound on the oscillation frequency in 2006. She helped install and commission the D0 Silicon Track Trigger and served as the onsite operations coordinator. Her post-doctoral research at Brown University focused on direct searches for new phenomena at the D0 and CMS experiments. She served as an on-call expert for the D0 data acquisition system and helped design and optimize the first trigger menus for CMS. She joined Boston University as an Assistant Professor in 2008 and played a lead role in the commissioning of the CMS High-Level Trigger during the 7 and 8 TeV runs. As the CMS Trigger Coordinator, she was responsible for the operation of the trigger during the LHC Run 2 and for ensuring that CMS collected the necessary datasets for both discovery and precision physics. Her physics interests on CMS include precision measurements of diboson cross sections and searches for new heavy gauge bosons and top quark partners. She has served as the subgroup convener of the CMS Standard Model Diboson Group and is currently serving as the co-convener of the CMS Beyond Two Generations physics group. Her work has been recognized by a prestigious Alfred P. Sloan fellowship and a CMS Distinguished Researcher award. Bose has a keen interest in outreach and has given many public lectures and interviews and also organized various events reaching out to high school students. She has served as a member of the Fermilab Users' Executive Committee and also the US LHC Users Association Executive Committee. She is currently a member of the APS Division of Particles and Fields (DPF) Executive Committee.

Alice White. Profile

Professor White came to BU in September 2013 from Bell Labs, where she was Chief Scientist. Her research career spanned many areas, but common themes have been fabrication and materials. After a PhD thesis and a postdoc looking at the physics of electronic transport in 1D metal wires at low temperatures, she moved into using high-dose ion implantation to synthesize materials, including implanting Co ions to make high-quality crystalline layers of CoSi2 inside a silicon wafer. Switching fields once again, she worked on novel fiber devices, fabricating phase masks by reactive ion etching of glass to make fiber-Bragg-grating devices manufacturable. This led to a work in so-called “silicon optical bench” technology, which uses semiconductor processing techniques to create optical subassemblies for lasers and detectors as well as optical waveguide interconnects. More recently, she worked on extending this technology to integrate both photonics and electronics in silicon using a commercial CMOS fabrication facility.
