CMS guides for your virtual visit:


Michael Hoch

Michael Hoch, visiting professor at FSU Tallahassee University in Florida/ USA.  I studied in Vienna/ Austria and came to CERN to make my PhD 26 years ago. Since than I was working as physicist at CERN for various universities constructing the ALICE TPC field cage and installed the CMS Si Tracker. The last 10 years I focused on the cross disciplinary science and art engagement and networking program ORIGIN: https://mhoch.web.cern.ch/Art@CMS/ORIGIN_September_2021.pdf

Tae-Jeong Kim

I am a Professor leading the CMS group at Hanyang University. I am also deputy team leader of the Korea CMS collaboration which consists of around 110 members. In CMS, I am involved in the muon subsystem called RPC which stands for Resistive Plate Chamber. Muon is one of the stable particles that come from various physics processes in the proton-proton collisions. For example, the top quark, the heaviest fundamental particle, decays to a bottom quark and a W boson where the W boson decays a muon and a neutrino. It would be very exciting to show you our CMS detector which allows us to discover the secret of nature. 


Hyejin Kwon 

I am a PhD student at the Seoul National University, I joined the CMS Collaboration in 2017. My main physics topic is to search for a new heavy neutral gauge boson which is mediated by supersymmetry particles. In CMS, I am responsible of Level-1 trigger conditions and database (L1T DPG subgroup coordinator), and also working as an L3 contact which liaise Alignment/Calibration group and Trigger Study Group. 


In Seoul:

Korea CMS Team Leader: Prof. Yang Un-Ki

I am the leader of the Korea-CMS collaboration, working as a Professor at Seoul National University.My research interests are the origin of matters, searches for hidden symmetry in nature. I have searched for extra Higgs particles and Majorana neutrinos to study the origin of mass. I am also involved in the GEM muon detector to improve the performance of the searches in the CMS experiment.


Hanyang Museum Curator: Hwang Nayoung

I am the Curator of Hanyang University Museum in Seoul. I am very happy to introduce the experiment of CMS and ALICE at the special exhibition called The Cosmonaut (http://www.hy2021cosmonaut.com)  in May 2012. I think this virtual tour held at Hanyang University Museum will be a good opportunity to inspire Korean students.


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 ! 

Noemi Beni

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.
