Dr Paul Collier, Head of Beams at CERN was the School of Physics and Astronomy’s invited speaker to give a Stoner Colloquium.
Paul’s background is in Applied Physics and Electrical Engineering, he studied his Undergraduate degree here at University of Leeds and has since studied and worked at Sheffield Hallam, so it was good to be able to welcome him back to Leeds.
Dr Collier spoke about ‘The LHC: Past, Present and Future’, and received a fantastic turnout from across the University and elsewhere.
Dr Collier also gave an alumni talk the following day to a variety of undergraduates, postgraduates and postdocs and highlight the relevant opportunities at CERN.
The next Stoner Colloquium will be on Tuesday 8th March 2016 and our invited speaker is Professor Julia Yeomans from University of Oxford.
