veronica berglyd olsen


My name is Veronica Berglyd Olsen. I am currently doing a Ph.D. in high energy physics with the University of Oslo, Norway, and stationed full time at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland/France. At CERN I am involved in an experiment called AWAKE, an advanced plasma wakefield experiment.

In addition to working with physics, I am a freelance writer. I mostly write on LGBT related topics, but I also enjoy writing popular science as well as some science fiction. I occationally write for the blog Skepchick, and I am the editor of its Norwegian sister site. I have also spent a few years working with LGBT politics with a Norwegian LGBT organization where I served as board member from 2014 to 2016.
