Daily Life of a PhD – Video by Ana Ventura Barroso
In her YouTube video, Ana invites us to join a normal day as an experimental particle physicist doing a PhD at DESY. Ana works at the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at CERN, where she helps in the construction of the new CMS outer tracker and does analysis to determine the mass of the top quark with high precision. She fights her code – a lot.
Ana came from Barcelona via Geneva to Hamburg, where aside from physics and science outreach activities, she loves doing sports. She plays football in the best team in Germany, Altona 93, and also loves rock climbing and bouldering.
Ana joined our video workshop in which Adam and Joseph helped participants to create a science video in just two days. We are amazed that this actually worked so well with our PhD students and Postdocs creating amazing videos. 🤩
