Caption: Fabiola Gianotti (born 1962) Italian physicist and Director-General of CERN, the European particle physics laboratory. Between 2009 and 2013 she was one of the leaders of the ATLAS (Toroidal LHC Apparatus) project. ATLAS is one of the two main detectors at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. Experiments using ATLAS to discover the Higgs boson led to the announcement of the discovery of a Higgs-like particle in 2012. Gianotti and other CERN physicists have received awards in recognition of this work, including the Fundamental Physics Prize in 2012. Gianotti joined CERN in 1987 and became the first female Director-General in 2016. Photographed on 15 May 2014.
