Isabel Rose Ojalvo is assistant professor of physics at Princeton University. She earned her Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2014. Prior to receiving her doctorate, she worked at the Boeing Space and Intelligence Systems in El Segundo, California and was also a Dicke Fellow in 2016. Her work focuses primarily on studying physics that decays to Tau leptons using data collected by the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) Experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, near Geneva, Switzerland. She has also spent many years working on the Level 1 Trigger System at CMS, by commissioning and installing hardware and developing new high-speed algorithms which run on large Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs). She has received grants from the Department of Energy Office of Science Graduate Traineeship Program, National Science Foundation Graduate Traineeship Program, and the Eric and Wendy Schmidt Foundation, among others. She is the author of over 1000 scientific papers published in peer-reviewed journals.
