Dr. Mengqing Wu is Assistant Professor at the Institute for Mathmatics, Astrophysics and Particle Physics of Radboud University in Nijmegen. Her research forcuses on experimental high energy physics (hep-ex) and cutting-edge detector technology.
In the past three years, she has led efforts under an EU Horizon 2020 funded project developing and delivering a beam line telescope (mini tracking detector system) based on a novel designed silicon sensor.
Her current research activities are categorised into two directions, one focuses on physics analyses searching for physics beyond standard model (BSM); the other focuses on detector system, including the High Granularity Timing Detector project for the ATLAS detector HL-LHC upgrade and the next generation general Trigger Data Acquisition (TDAQ) system for upgrades of the ATLAS detector. In the meanwhile, she is investigating research and development projects on the next generation detector system aspects.
