As part of my job, I get to speak to a wide variety of people working at CERN and visit some of the laboratory&rsquo;s most fascinating locations.

<p>
I am an official CERN guide, and have taken hundreds of visitors &ndash; including <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ExSjxf5l0jw">other science communicators</a> &ndash; on tours of the <abbr>CMS</abbr> experimental site located in Cessy&nbsp;🇫🇷.
I recently spoke on the Ratio podcast about <abbr>CERN</abbr> and more, if you fancy a listen: <br>

I am studying the attitudes within the particle-physics community towards public engagement with science (or outreach), the factors that influence participation in such activities and barriers that prevent participation.
My research focuses on the <abbr>CMS</abbr> collaboration, which has over 4000 people, including physicists, engineers, technicians, computer scientists and students.
