Summary

Steve Hillier has worked in Particle Physics research for over 25 years, mostly based on experiments at CERN, and specialising in the development of triggering systems.

Steve initially worked on OPAL at LEP, particularly on the Muon Endcap detector, Silicon Tungsten Luminometer and Central Trigger System. Since 1995, he has been a member of the Level-1 Calorimeter Trigger group of the ATLAS detector at LHC, taking a leading role in developing online software for the trigger system. In more recent years, he has also taken on several managerial roles, including being the coordinator of the international calorimeter trigger collaboration for four years. He has also recently joined the Birmingham effort in the DUNE collaboration.
