Fabiola Gianotti: The Millennium Physicist

(what's a "Modern Worthy"? click here to find out!)
Fabiola Gianotti, who this week takes the helm at CERN, home to world’s largest particle accelerator, is seen as a new breed of scientist.

Today the first female director-general of CERN, Fabiola Gianotti, takes up her new post. Gianotti formerly was a project leader of Atlas, one of the teams that discovered the Higgs boson.

Congratulations to her, and happy new year to all you readers!
