  • Peter Knapp

    Peter Knapp is a 32 year old Masters of Research student working at CERN.

  • Institute of High Energy Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences

    Ruan Manqi

    Ruan Manqi is currently an associate researcher at the Institute of High Energy Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. He is currently leading the simulation efforts, establishing the CEPC detector geometry and accomplishing the physics potential studies at the Circular Electron Positron Collider. He is also very active at promoting the science to the public. He has organized lectures and training courses for scientists to teach them how to write for the public.

  • Alessia Embriaco

    Alessia Embriaco is a 3rd year Ph.D. student working on Hadron therapy at INFN Pavia. She is currently working at the implementation of a model for the energy deposition of ion beam called MONET (Model of ioN dosE for Therapy), in the contest of cancer treatment.  In addition to her research, Alessia is involved in many outreach activities, in particular organizes experiments and laboratories for children.

  • Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare

    Silvia Biondi

    Silvia Biondi graduated in “Sapienza” University of Rome in 2013, with a master thesis on the New Small Wheel upgrade for the ATLAS Muon Spectrometer, LHC. She obtained her PhD in 2017 at the University of Bologna, working on the study of the Higgs boson production in association with top quark pairs at high-energy regimes. Now she is a INFN post-doc researcher at the same university and she is also an active member and photographer of the ATLAS outreach group at CERN and in Italy (ATLAS Italia).

  • Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory

    Jessica Esquivel

    Jessica Esquivel is a 5th year Ph.D. student studying high energy experimental physics from Syracuse University. She is currently working at Fermilab on the MicroBoone Collaboration, which works to detect ghostly particles called neutrinos in order to help us to crack several big mysteries of the universe. In addition to her research, Jessica is passionate about STEM outreach, bringing awareness to the lack of diversity in physics, and encouraging young minorities to reach their full potential.

  • High Energy Accelerator Research Organization

    Teppei Katori

    Teppei Katori is an experimental particle physicist and a lecturer at Queen Mary University of London, UK. He obtained his PhD at Indiana University, Bloomington (2008) on neutrino cross section measurements and tests of Lorentz invariance with the MiniBooNE neutrino experiment, Fermilab. After taking postdoc position at Conrad group, MIT (2009-2013), he was appointed on the current position. He is the recipient of 2012 IUPAP C11 young scientist prize and 2013 APS Henry Primakoff award. Currently he serves as a committee member of IoP Astroparticle physics group.

  • High Energy Accelerator Research Organization

    Saurabh Sandilya

    Saurabh Sandilya is an experimental high energy physicist, currently working as a Post-Doctoral Researcher in the Department of Physics, University of Cincinnati. He is mostly located at the High Energy Accelerator Research Organization (KEK), Japan for the development and commissioning of the Time of Propagation detector for the Belle II experiment. He also analyses physics data from the electron positron collisions recorded by the Belle experiment at the KEKB accelerator.

      Meet Beatrice from TRIUMF

      My name is Beatrice, and I’m an experimental physicist in the field of high precision/low energy particle physics. Currently, I work at TRIUMF in of a small team of researchers who are taking part in one of the most fascinating pursuits in particle physics: the hunt for the electric dipole moment (EDM) of the neutron. This project is a Japanese-Canadian collaboration between KEK, U Osaka, RCNP, U Winnipeg, U Manitoba, TRIUMF, UBC, UNBC, and SFU.

  • ARC Centre of Excellence for Particle Physics at the Terascale

    Paul Jackson

    I lead the experimental particle physics group at the University of Adelaide and am a member of CoEPP (the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Particle Physics at the Terascale).

    I’m a member of the ATLAS and Belle II experiments where I’m using new techniques to search for physics we have yet to observe.
