New APPEC representative for the ECFA Detector Panel
During the last meeting of the General Assembly Federica Petricca was elected as new representative of APPEC in the ECFA Detector Panel.
She did her PhD in 2005 at the Max-Planck-Institut für Physik and the Ludwig Maximilian Universität, Munich, and since then she was working on cryogenic detectors. Since 2014 she is spokesperson of the CRESST (Cryogenic Rare Event Search with Superconducting Thermometers) collaboration for the direct search of dark matter interactions with cryogenic detectors. In the ECFA detector panel she will contribute her experience in low-temperature detector technology and methods, low-background techniques and electronics of data acquisition systems and signal processing.
She is accepting the charge with pleasure and hopes to be soon able to provide a constructive contribution.
