Isabel Trigger

Isabel Particle physicist.
ATLAS / Large Hadron Collider.
Scientist at TRIUMF in Vancouver BC.

I am a Senior Scientist at TRIUMF and an Adjunct Professor in the VISPA Research Centre at the University of Victoria Department of Physics and Astronomy. I work on the ATLAS experiment at CERN. We are building thin gap chambers for the ATLAS Muon Spectrometer New Small Wheel upgrade, looking for Supersymmetry and measuring Gauge boson couplings.

We have a TRIUMF ATLAS group that is part of ATLAS-Canada.
