Galactic Neutrinos measured in IceCube!

Breaking news! The IceCube experiment has announced that they have measured multiple neutrinos, the elusive particles that travel all over our universe, coming from a single point source in the sky for the very first time! I've asked two colleagues, Dr Jhilik Majumdar and Rasa Muller, both experts in neutrinos, to explain this result. https://youtu.be/ZQR2mCKdluA… Continue reading Galactic Neutrinos measured in IceCube!

Pride was a riot

I created this post and graphic for the LGBTQ social media channels, but I want to share it here as well. Pride was a riot. Without Black and Trans folks, we wouldn't have made the progress in equality that we have today. At the start of Pride month we want to unequivocally state that we… Continue reading Pride was a riot

Creating a custom science-themed laptop skin!

As an experimental particle physicist, my laptop is an extension of myself. I use it every day to work, to run my code, to talk to colleagues around the world, to check Twitter, and also to relax. I'm writing this post on it right now! Since I (usually) travel a lot, it's a vital way… Continue reading Creating a custom science-themed laptop skin!

Recreating the nails in the box video

There's a video going around social media of a box of nails getting sorted by shaking. I was sceptical about whether this was a real video, or reversed, so as a good scientist, I decided to recreate the experiment for myself! Here are the results: https://youtu.be/HEwGeqR4duQ What do you think? Do you believe it? Have… Continue reading Recreating the nails in the box video

On Call for the ATLAS experiment

This weekend I was on call for the @atlasexperiment, specifically for our control room shifts monitoring the Inner Detector. What does that mean? It means I left my weekend free to be called if someone who was scheduled to be on shift during this time gets sick, injured, or is otherwise unavailable. It wasn't likely… Continue reading On Call for the ATLAS experiment
