The seventh speaker in the series is Dr Victoria Martin.

Dr Martin is a reader in particle physics at the University of Edinburgh.  She obtained her BSc in Mathematical Physics and PhD in particle physics from the University of Edinburgh before spending five years in the USA as a researcher at Northwestern University in Illinois and returning to Edinburgh in 2005. 

Dr Martin co-leads the Higgs boson research team at the University of Edinburgh. She and her team work on the ATLAS and CLICdp experiments at CERN. CERN is the European laboratory for particle physics, in Geneva, Switzerland, where the Higgs boson - named after Edinburgh physicist Peter Higgs and Indian physicist Satyendra Bose - was discovered in 2012. Victoria's current research includes investigating how the Higgs boson behaves and developing future experiments to make more detailed and precise measurements of the Higgs boson. 

Dr Martin's lecture is titled The Higgs Boson: Past, Present and Future
