About Cern

At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. They use the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments to study the basic constituents of matter – the fundamental particles. The particles are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives the physicists clues about how the particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature.

The instruments used at CERN are purpose-built particle accelerators and detectors. Accelerators boost beams of particles to high energies before the beams are made to collide with each other or with stationary targets. Detectors observe and record the results of these collisions.

Founded in 1954, the CERN laboratory sits astride the Franco-Swiss border near Geneva. It was one of Europe's first joint ventures and now has 22 member states.


Physics Research Intern

May 2021 - July 2021 Geneva, Geneva
“The experience was great. I learned so much about collider physics and learned how to run Monte Carlo simulations for the purpose of simulating collider events. I also learned a lot about extended Higgs models.”

Summer Student Intern

June 2020 - August 2020 Geneva, Geneva
“I liked working at a world-class institution where I was working on a project that could actually make a real difference in the world of physics.”
