The e3e monitor team
Tomoko Muranaka (JP)
Physicist working on material characterisations for future accelerator developments.
Brice Copy (FR)
Brice has been part of the CERN Engineering Department since 2009, where he has been working on cybersecurity research and middleware development for the LHC and general CERN infrastructure. Prior to this, he developed the project management tools used at CERN for the construction of the LHC and other large European scientific projects. Software engineer by training but dabbling in hardware by necessity (and a strong personal interest), his involvement with e3e monitor stems from the belief that simple ideas executed well can change the daily lives of many for the best.
Leonardo Milano (IT)
Leonardo works as physicist at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research. The large scale data analysis is his daily challenge. He is part of the ALICE Collaboration, which tries to recreate in the laboratory extreme energy conditions, similar to those just after the big bang. His Ph.D thesis was awarded as best Italian thesis in nuclear physics in 2013. After a fellowship at CERN, he is now working at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California. He joined the e3e monitor team in 2013.
Yigit Demirag (TR)
Yigit Demirag is currently in his senior year of undergraduate studies at Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering at Bilkent University, in Turkey. As an undergraduate, he developed an unsupervised machine learning algorithm requiring advanced signal processing for THz-TDS system in Nanotechnology Research Center, which resulted in a patent preparation. He also worked at BiLCEM supercomputers which doubles the world record in computational electromagnetic to improve load-balancing and reduce memory usage with openMP. During his stay at CERN, he is working on vectorization and SIMD optimization of Random Number Generators on Intel’s Haswell Architecture.
Physicist working on Silicon & Diamond detectors development, integration and operation.
Kerem Günes (TR)
Kerem is a senior student of Electrical and Electronics Engineering at Bilkent University in Turkey. He’s an experienced hardware and software developer, a cybersecurity enthusiast and an avid traveler. As an undergraduate researcher in artificial intelligence, he’s currently developing a 3D visual simulation framework for testing game theory and reinforcement learning based models of human pilot flight behaviour. His work paves the way for realistic simulation-based assessments of the consequences of the inclusion of autonomous UAVs alongside conventional piloted aircraft.
Ines is an innovation enthusiast and social entrepreneur. Formerly she worked in the corporate environment and has experience in process design and improvement, project and international management, communication planning and business analysis.
In 2014, after a career break for family reasons, she co-founded THE Port association-- a Swiss not-for-profit association, encouraging innovation in the humanitarian sector. Ines organises hackathons that bridge the gap between humanitarian organisations and state-of-the-art technology innovators. THE Port fosters new forms of collaboration in the heart of International Geneva. Find out more about her work at http://www.theport.ch/
Peter Klipfel (US)
Peter is currently a founding partner and lead technical consultant at Archethought. He has an BS in Computer Science from the University of Colorado. He has worked with national laboratories, government transportation departments, and companies of all sizes to solve problems ranging from weather modeling to crop disease recognition to educational travel.
Kevin Koh (SG)
Kevin I. Koh is a specialist in international human rights and sustainable development which he is actively seeking to apply in technology-based social innovation. Currently working at a major international human rights organisation, his areas of expertise include: children’s rights; women’s rights; the inter-dynamics between international economic law and policy with human rights; and, migration and human rights. In a personal capacity, Kevin is also doing pro-bono work on social entrepreneurship and innovation as part of the “Collaborate for Social Impact” initiative of the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva. He also provides policy advice for the Webster Humanitarian Association, and is participating in the founding of a non-profit start-up for human rights advocacy through the fine arts.
Bertrand Lefort (FR)
Bertrand has a University Technology’s Diploma in industrial computing and electronic. He first works at CNRS on Adaptive Optics for the ESO Very Large Telescopes located in Chile before moving out to Canaries Islands to work on the world biggest telescope (GTC) as a Senior real-time engineer to design and implement the active-optic control system of the primary mirror. Bertrand also benefit of experience in the private sector for being two time entrepreneur: he founded a company offering scientific and engineering consultancy applied to gastronomy that received the Madrid Fusion Technology Innovation Award 2010. Four years ago he has join CERN Beam Department where he is taking care of the Antimatter-Factory : an anti-protons decelerator used to produce and study anti-hydrogen.
Robin Scheibler (CH)
Robin is a PhD student focusing on signal processing for speech and acoustics. Before that he was an engineer at NEC Corporation in Japan and IBM Research in Zürich. He was involved in the Safecast project designing mobile radiation detectors to monitor the fallout from the Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear accident from 2011. More recently, Robin is participating in the Bio-Design for the Real-World project whose purpose is to create open-source devices for water quality monitoring.
Biliana Vassileva (BG)
Biliana holds MAs in Sociology and Leading Innovation & Change. She has been working in the non-for-profit sector for the last 15 years, focusing on education, culture, women and children. Her research focuses on the applied dimensions of soft tools for organizational change and creativity enhancement. In the last two years, Biliana has been mentoring innovation summits and hackatons. At present, she is working on the contingent interplay between wisdom & education.
