Poul Henrik Damgaard did his undergraduate studies at the University of Copenhagen and then went to Cornell University, where he received his PhD in 1982. He has held post-doctoral positions at Nordita, CERN, and the Niels Bohr Institute, and has for a period of six years been Scientific Associate at the Theory Group of CERN. In 1995 he took up a position as Senior Lecturer at Uppsala University and that same year moved to the Niels Bohr Institute on a similar position. He has been Professor of Theoretical Physics since 2010, and Director of Niels Bohr International Academy since its beginning in 2007. His current research interests include modern techniques for amplitude computations, non-perturbative studies of a highly supersymmetric theory as formulated on a space-time lattice, and constraints on so-called electroweak baryogenesis from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
Cornelia Hoehr received her Ph.D. in physics from Heidelberg University
in Germany and the Max-Plank institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg. After a
post-doctoral research term at the Argonne National Lab, USA, she then moved to
TRIUMF as a post-doctoral researcher, and subsequently took on roles in operation
and facilities in isotope production and proton therapy. In 2013 she became a
research scientist at TRIUMF and an Adjunct Professor at the University of Victoria,
and in 2018 she became Adjunct at the University of British Columbia and took over
the role as Deputy Director – Life Sciences at TRIUMF. Her research interests are
focused on medical isotope production and proton therapy. She is a member of the
steering committee for the Particle Therapy Co-Operative Group (PTCOG), consultant
to the IAEA in isotope production, and was chair of the TRIUMF User Group Executive
Aneesh Manohar did his undergraduate studies at Caltech and completed his PhD at Harvard in 1983 under the supervision of Howard Georgi. He held positions at Harvard and MIT, before moving to UC San Diego in 1989.
Giulia Zanderighi was born in Milan, Italy, in 1974. After studying physics at the University of Milan, she earned her doctorate from the University of Pavia. She pursued her academic career as a postdoc at the Institute for Particle Physics Phenomenology in Durham (UK) and Fermilab in Batavia (USA).
In 2005, she became a fellow in the theoretical department at CERN, followed by a position as a lecturer at the University of Oxford and Tutorial Fellow at Wadham College in 2007. As of 2010 she was a Professor of Physics at the University of Oxford. In 2014 she took a leave from this position, holding in a five-year staff position at CERN. She has taken her office as a director at the Max Planck Institute for Physics on January 1, 2019.
