Lecture and Tour
In this virtual interactive visit, you will explore an engineering marvel, the experimental site of the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) detector at CERN. CMS scientists will interact virtually and explain the physics and technology behind the experiment and answer your questions. Home of the birth of the Web in 1989, the CERN, a European research organization that operates the largest particle physics laboratory in the world, has hosted several Nobel prize winners (e.g. Rubia in 1984, Charpak in 1992, Higgs and Englert in 2013). The CMS experiment is one of two large general-purpose particle physics detectors built on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. The CMS experiment's goal is to investigate a wide range of physics, including the search for the Higgs boson, extra dimensions, and particles that could make up the dark matter by using extreme computing, large data analysis, new materials and AI.

Dr. Thibaut Lery acts as Director of the Office of Research and Evaluation at KAUST. Previously, he was Senior Science Officer in charge of foresight, evaluation services and collaborative projects at the European Science Foundation in Strasbourg, France. He was also an associated Professor at the University of Strasbourg, teaching Project Management at Master level at the Ecole de Management de Strasbourg - Business School, and at the Ecole Supérieur de Biotechnologie de Strasbourg (ESBS). He has managed European foresight initiatives, Research Networking Programmes, projects with the European Commission and Peer review activities. He has been working as an expert for the European Commission (Research infrastructures, Marie Curie Programmes, Future Emerging Technologie, DG Research, DG INFSO), the Irish and Norwegian governments. He has a PhD in computational and theoretical astrophysics. He was previously involved in the Irish National grid, the Irish Computing Center ICHEC, in European projects such as EGEE, EARNEST, JETSET, HET and PRACE. Previously, he has been holding academic teaching and research positions in France, Canada, Ireland and Congo.
