How do you look for something if you don’t know what it looks like? M. Bilge Demirkoz is part of the team searching for Dark Matter at the CERN Collider in Geneva. With poetic grace, Demirkoz pulls in parallels from a horrific skiing accident that drove home for her what it means to search for meaning in a whiteout – a whiteout of snow or of information.
Bilge Demirköz is an Associate Professor at METU in Ankara, Turkey. She did her D.Phil. at Oxford University, working at CERN on ATLAS Semi-Conductor Tracker (SCT). She was a CERN Research Fellow working on the ATLAS High Level Trigger for two years and then a visitor at University of Cambridge for six months. As a master’s student at MIT, she worked on the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer AMS project, which was installed on the International Space Station ISS in May 2011.
