MCS Alumnus



IN 2012 Anamika Aggarwal completed her schooling from MCS, Pathankot and got admission at BITS Pilani, Pilani campus. She was a dual degree student at BITS Pilani pursuing M. Sc. (Hons.) Physics and B.E. (Hons.) Electrical & Electronics Engineering. Her passion for Physics led her to take up several academic projects and internships. She worked at IUCAA, Pune (Summer 2014) under the supervision of Prof. Joydeep Bagchi on the project titled 'Cosmic Ray Muon Detection' and at IISER, Pune (Summer 2015) under the supervision of Dr. Sourabh Dube on the project titled 'Top quark pair production in proton-proton collisions'. Moreover she went for another internship on the project 'Resonant and Non-resonant Study of Dihiggs Production' under the supervision of Prof. Sudeshna Banerjee at TIFR, Mumbai.

She then pursued her Master's thesis at CERN, Geneva, on the data analysis of LHC Run 2 in the non-resonant double Higgs production channel reconstructed with two photons and two b-jets in CMS & subsequently, the second thesis at TIFR, Mumbai, where she took part in the CMS Phase II upgrade team focusing on the trigger system. After completing her dual degree in 2017, she went on to pursue PhD in the same field. Currently, she is a PhD student at Radboud University, Nijmegen, Netherlands in affiliation with NIKHEF(Netherlands) and CERN(Switzerland).

She is working in the data analysis team at CERN which focusses on precise measurements of the Higgs Boson in the decay channel where Higgs boson decays to two W-bosons in the ATLAS experiment. Furthermore, she has to her credit two research papers published in collaboration with research organisations as well as two talks at UCLouvain, Belgium and Fermilab, Chicago, USA.
