Dartmouth at CERN

Christine Qi '19 pictured second from left, visited The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) for four months as a research intern in particle physics analysis.  CERN operates the largest particle physics laboratory in the world and is responsible for the discovery of Higgs boson in 2012.  There she designed a set of event selections for Higgs boson pair production which will confirm the existence of Higgs self-coupling predicted by the Standard Model.
