Vice President: Professor Fairouz Malek

Prof Fairouz Malek is Research Director at CNRS (National Centre for Scientific Research, Particle and Nuclear Physics Department, IN2P3) since 2009. Most of her work was performed at CERN. First, on a nuclear physics experiment with low energy anti-protons beam at LEAR (Low Energy Antiproton Ring), studying the hypernuclear decay lifetime in nuclear fission. Then at the SPS (Super Proton Synchrotron) on experiments using heavy ions beams, studying the Quark-Gluon Plasma state of matter. She was involved in the concept, the prototyping, and the tests of a Cherenkov Counter for Phase 2 of the AMS experiment (Anti-Matter Spectrometer) which flew to the International space station and which purpose was to study the anti-matter in space. Since 2000, she is a member of the ATLAs experiment at the LHC whose main outcome was the discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012. She served as Publications committee members and as Physics Office coordinator until 2020. She was the ATLAS Grenoble institutional team leader for ten years (2003-2013) and the scientific project leader of the consortium that she built in France, gathering the four French LHC experiments (12 laboratories) around the GRID computing project (CERN W-LCG) .
