Dr Hélène FELICE
Magnet engineer at CEA Paris-Saclay

Helene Felice is a magnet engineer at CEA Paris-Saclay. She started her career at CEA Superconducting Magnet Lab doing her PhD on high field Nb3Sn dipoles for HEP. In 2007 she joined the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory as a LARP (LHC Accelerator Research Program) Toohig fellow before becoming a LBNL research scientist. From 2007 to 2015, she contributed to the LHC Accelerator Research Program on magnet design, magnet protection and magnet assembly. She also led the magnet design of the 28 GHz ion source magnet for FRIB. In 2015, she moved back to CEA Paris Saclay where she worked in collaboration with CERN on a NbTi large aperture quadrupole for HL-LHC and on the design of a Nb3Sn demonstrator towards FCC-hh. In 2021, she joined CERN as the Superconducting Magnet Technology section leader where she contributed to HL-LHC and to Nb3Sn magnets development. In Dec 2022, she returned to CEA Paris Saclay where she is now mainly working on the NEWGAIN project on the development of a 28 GHz Superconducting ECR ion source to be installed in GANIL, France.
