CMS Guides

CMS guides for your virtual visit:

Ines Pinto Pereira Da Cruz

Hi! I’m Ines, a computer scientist from Porto, Portugal. I’ve been at CERN for three years now and a CMS guide for two.  I’m working in the IT department at CERN, on the Zenodo team. I’ve also worked in a robotics lab before so I would say robotics and IT are my favorite areas

Pedro da Silva

Pedro is original from Lisbon, Portugal, studied Technological Physics Engineering in Instituto Superior Tecnico and worked in LIP - Laboratorio de Instrumentao e Fisica de Particlas. Since 2010 he's been at CERN as a research physicist working on top, higgs and standard model physics, as well as in the upgrade of the CMS detector for the second phase of the LHC.


CMS virtual visits technical experts:

Mohamed Darwish

I am a PhD student at the University of Antwerp (Belgium) and have been a part of the CMS collaboration since 2015. I obtained a M.Sc. from Alexandria University (Egypt), where I worked on preparatory studies to search for the production of new heavy particles using the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). My main doctoral research point is to search for a new particle "heavy neutral Lepton (HNL)" in the data collected by the CMS detector in full Run2 . I have been awarded by CMS Achievement Award in 2018 for supporting CMS data taking in as HLT DOC. I am currently working as a L3 convener in PdmV/PPD group along with part of the CMS Shift Organization team.

Haifa Rejeb Sfar

I am a phD student at the university of Antwerp and university of Tunis El Manar, I joined the CMS Collaboration in 2017 , since then I have been involved in the search of a hypothetical  particle the so called « heavy neutral lepton »  in CMS , DUNE and SoLid experiments in complementary phase spaces beside that I am working as a CMS shifts organiser and shifters trainer and I am also part of the CMS virtual visits team. Finally I am looking forward to start a new CMS tracker activities !

Zoltan Szillasi


Zoltan and Noemi, physicists, PhD in particle physics

During the last 20 years they have been working for Hardware Muon Barrel Alignment System and Fiber Optical Sensing System at CMS

Their big hobby has been the CMS Virtual visits since the beginning.
