Monica Dunford

I first learned about Monica Dunford because of her starring role in the documentary “Particle Fever”. She played a very important part in what was the biggest and most expensive experiment in the history of the world; no small feat! I was absolutely captivated by her love and passion for physics and for her insatiable desire for finding the elusive Higgs Boson particle, also described as the “god particle”, which potentially explained the origin of all matter.

Monica is an inspiration to all of us. We are excited to have her as part of our series of “Great Women Doing Great Things”. We will continue to follow her career and support her in her future scientific endeavors.  Join us in reading this fantastic Q&A we had with Monica and enjoy one of the great scientific minds of our time.

“The sea! the sea! the open sea! The blue, the fresh, the ever free! Without a mark, without a bound, It runneth the earth’s wide regions round; It plays with the clouds; it mocks the skies; Or like a cradled creature lies.”- Barry Cornwall.
