Congratulations to graduate student Lucie Gauthier
. She received a CMS 2012 Achievement Award with the citation, "For trigger menu development, implementation of SUSY triggers and outstanding service as an HLT on call expert
". Lucie has been serving as the SUSY Trigger Coordinator, where she has overseen changes to the SUSY trigger menu corresponding to an increase by over a factor of three in instantaneous luminosity. Lucie developed High Level Trigger jet algorithms that use particle-flow reconstruction and remove pileup particles, providing a 10% rate reduction to jet triggers used by the SUSY group with no loss in efficiency.
