Inaugural NYC CERN Alumni Meeting Hosted by Quantbot

Just over 30 years after receiving his PhD in nuclear physics from The European Organization for Nuclear Research, commonly known as CERN, our CEO, Michael Botlo, had the pleasure of co-organizing and hosting the first CERN-alumni meeting for the New York region. Former and present CERN researchers met at the Quantbot office on April 28 for a night of reminiscences, scientific discussions, and a live video link to the CERN accelerator control center. The highlight of the evening were speeches given by the featured speaker, Axel Drees, the head of the physics department at SUNY Stony Brook, and by Michi himself. As a whole it was an auspicious start to expand the CERN alumni network with the goal to increase job opportunities for scientific researchers and be a platform to support fundamental research .
