Women in Research Physics

Dr. Veronique Boisvert

Senior lecturer in Physics, Department of Physics, Royal Holloway, University of London

WIR Drell110511005

Dr Boisvert's research focuses on experimental particle physics, especially the interesting question of how particles acquire mass, and her current research involves analysing data produced by the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, one of the biggest particle physics laboratory in the world. 

In her interview, she spoke about her own journey to becoming a physicist, how she was influenced by her mentor Professor Persis S Drell at Cornell University, and answers in easy-to-understand terms what physicists do and what some of the big questions are that the field is attempting to answer at centres such as CERN.

Reid Research Scholarship

Both Bedford College and Royal Holloway College have a long history of providing funding for women's education. The Reid Research Scholarship, named after Elizabeth Jesser Reid, founder of Bedford College, offers post-graduate research students a tuition fee reduction plus maintenance funds allowing them to undertake valuable areas of study.

If you would like to contribute to assisting future generations of student scholarship, find out more about giving to the College.
