Tara Shears: Cern Physicist

Tara is a particle physicist at Liverpool University and is Liverpool’s representative at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Switzerland. While Manchester’s Brian Cox enjoys more fame, we believe Tara to be one of the best communicators of science we have ever seen. She started her career investigating particle physics at CERN in Switzerland, and was subsequently awarded a Royal Society research fellowship in 2000 to continue her research at the Collider Detector at Fermilab facility near Chicago. Today, Tara splits her time between Liverpool and Switzerland.
