Alumna Jean Chu visits the Department and meets with Oxford Women in Physics

Posted: 13 Nov 2014

Today we had a wonderful visit from alumna Jean Chu (St Hugh's), who met with the Oxford Women in Physics group in the Common Room (Clarendon Lab) during one of their regular meetings.

Jean shared some experiences of what it was like to be a female student of physics in the late 50's, and her career afterwards.

You may have seen Jean in the latest issue of the Physics newsletter (sent by post together with the 'Oxford Today' issue).

Members of The Henry Moseley Society visited CERN for a unique chance to take part in underground visits (ATLAS/LHCb), lectures and other areas of CERN in Meyrin, Switzerland last October.

Led by senior members of the Particle Physics Group and students currently working on said experiments, visitors had a chance to see first hand the scale of the work being carried out, on CERN 60th Anniversary.

The day visit included a Welcome talk by Dr Paul Collier (CERN Beams Department Head) at The Globe, visits to ATLAS, LHCb, Synchrocyclotron, the Microcosm exhibition; lunch at Restaurant 2 follo
