Speaker bio: 

Margaux Lopez is a SLAC engineer who has been toiling away (mostly voluntarily) in the dungeons of SLAC for the past three and a half years. Her primary goal is engineering the heck out of a fancypants camera destined for the mountains of Chile, and her secondary goal is telling anyone who will listen how cool it is (and how many corgi puppies would fit inside).
