Klaus Mönig

Klaus Mönig received his Ph.D. from the university of Wuppertal for a measurement of the $Z$ boson mass and width, with the DELPHI experiment at LEP. After that he joined CERN continuing to work on electroweak precision tests with DELPHI. In 1998 he went to DESY as a leading scientist, where he worked for about eight years on the preparation of a future linear collider and is now leading the group working on the ATLAS experiment at the LHC.
