Experienced instrumental researcher that has worked in nuclear physics, particle physics and gravitational waves (GWs). I have worked at CERN, SLAC and the Virgo and KAGRA gravitational wave observatories. The highlight of my Ph.D. has been the development of an accelerometer with an interferometric readout which is the world’s most sensitive inertial sensor from 8-100 Hz to date. Additionally, I have taught undergraduate (particle physics) and postgraduate (GW instrumentation) courses. Finally, I have benefited from the timing of the first detection of GWs, which gave ample opportunities for outreach. In my case, that led to many public seminars and a national TV appearance in The Netherlands. I now work on cryogenic inertial sensing and vibration isolation for the E-TEST project. For Advanced Virgo and future GW detectors, I lead a mode matching and cavity control project using phase cameras and other sensing solutions.

Agni Bethani


Agni Bethani profile pic
My research interests revolve around Higgs physics and searches for physics beyond the Standard Model (SM). I am an expert in searches for Higgs pair production at the LHC. I was a member of CMS during my PhD, and after 5 years in ATLAS I returned to CMS in July 2019. While in ATLAS I lead the HH->bbττ analysis. Currently, in CMS, I am working on the HH->bbWW channel. As we gather more data at the LHC and improve our analysis techniques, the sensitivity to the Higgs pair production increases. The HH decays studies can constrain several SM parameters, with the Higgs self-coupling being the most important one. Therefore I am interested in the Effective Field Theory interpretation of the HH results. In parallel, I am contributing the flavour-tagging group in CMS. I am also interested in science communication, outreach and the representation of women and minorities in science.

My research aims are to discover new physics in the rare decays of mesons. I have taken leading roles in data analysis at the LHCb and NA62 experiments, have developed trigger firmware implemented on FPGA devices, and CUDA algorithms implemented on GPUs.
