Anna Henrichs

Anna Henrichs is a final year PhD student at the University of Göttingen, Germany. She was based at CERN from February 2009 until the end of 2010, where she worked on ATLAS Pixel software before shifting to focus on top physics measurements with data. She continues to take Pixel detector shifts in the ATLAS Control Room several times per year, while thesis-writing creeps ever closer back in Germany.
