My name is Veronica Berglyd Olsen. I am a physicist with a PhD in plasma wakefield acceleration and a Master of Science in computational physics. I currently work as a fellow on the High Luminosity LHC, upgrade to the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, Geneva, Switzerland. You can read more about the project here.
In addition to working with physics, I have been involved with LGBT organisations as a board member, and I have written a lot on LGBT related topics. I sometimes do freelance writing on the topic and have been published a few times. I also enjoy writing popular science as well as some science fiction. I occasionally write for the blog Skepchick, and I am the editor of its Norwegian sister site.
