Maria Soledad Molina Gonzalez
I have joined CERN's EP Detector Technologies group as a fellow contributing to the activities of the EP R&D programme. I am an aerospace engineer with specialization in Air Navigation Systems, from University of Seville, with specific knowledge on modelling, carbon composite material and processes, electronics and radiation effects on electronic devices.
Previously, I worked as a research assistant in the Electronic Engineering Group of University of Seville on thermal design, data acquisition and electronics simulations. In the same group, I was responsible for the research on Structural Health Monitoring systems based on carbon composites structures instrumented with embedded optical sensors, design and assembly of the optoelectronic detection scheme for mechanical testing and manufacturing of a technology concept demonstrator. My activity at CERN will focus on the R&D of large carbon composite cryostats to support the operation of both liquid argon calorimeters and superconductive magnets for future experiments.
