Outreach Activities

Antimatter Isn't Just Science Fiction!

I enjoy sharing my enthusiasm for science with the community. One of the ways I do this is by giving presentations about experimental particle physics which are suitable for the general public. Topics can range from antimatter to the search for the Higgs boson. These presentations are usually about 50 minutes long, followed by enough time for all the fantastic questions from the audience. I can also offer shorter talks and remote presentations.

I have a particular interest in promoting Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). This includes encouraging girls and young women to study STEM subjects. In a presentation for this audience, I would present some exciting science, highlight several important women in science, and discuss my own experiences as a woman working in physics.

Here are some of the previous outreach activities I've been involved in:
