Beate Heinemann is a leading scientist at DESY, and a professor for experimental particle physics at the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg. She has worked on the H1 experiment at DESY, on the CDF experiment at Fermilab in the United States, and since 2007 she is a member of the ATLAS collaboration at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Geneva. With her research she aims to obtain a deeper understanding of the fundamental particles and their interactions. She focuses on measurements probing the weak interaction and the Higgs boson, and on searches for dark matter at the LHC. She also works on the construction of future tracking detectors which will be installed in the next decade.
