Allow me to introduce myself

Hello everyone,

I’m the newest member of the LHC bloggers. I decided to join some of my friends and tell you about life here as a graduate student working on ATLAS at CERN. It’s full of ups and downs, heartaches and rewards, and coffee… lots of coffee.

However, my hope is to talk about not only about science, but also the stuff we do for fun as part of the CERN community. Bearing this in mind, my first blog post is on the European Research Laboratory Olympics (Atomiades) that took place June 12-15 in Berlin.

53 people from CERN (students, postdocs and staff alike) attended and participated in the following events: Golf, Athletics, Swimming, Half Marathon, Basketball, Volleyball, Roller Blading, Tennis, and Sailing. Shattering records and sterotypes, we took home several medals (including a silver in tennis, in which I took part).

Even though we work hard, we always find some time for fun. Until next time. 🙂
