Date: Tuesday, 22 September 2020 19:30

Venue: Zoom

Dr Clara Nellist will talk to us about the work of CERN’s ATLAS experiment — one of the four main experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). This is one of the largest and most complex experiments humanity have ever created and is also one of our largest ever collaborative efforts in science (involving roughly 3,000 physicists from 183 institutions in 38 countries). ATLAS is one of the two experiments that together discovered the Higgs boson. The newest data from the experiment was presented at a major conference in July/August this year so this is an opportunity to hear up to the minute results in our species’ attempt to understand the structure of the universe. 

Dr Nellist completed her PhD at Manchester and has continued her research work at LAL in Orsay, France, the University of Göttingen in Germany, and is now in Nijmegen in the Netherlands at Radboud University as an Excellence Initiative Fellow. She also works on improving equality, diversity, inclusion and accessibility in science and technology and is a passionate science communicator.
