My scientific partner is Maria Dimou. I will meet her once a week to discuss of the project’s advancement. She will also permit me to meet other scientists and introduce me to the scientific community.

Maria Dimou worked on the CERN email gateway configuration, the definition of X.500 directory protocols, network topology and web support from the beginning of the web. She now participates in Grid operations for the LHC experiments, chairs the Academic Training Committee and the IT rapid e-learning project, which she initiated.

To understand the LHC data process :

For the “data deluge” that I told you in the article #2 of this blog, it exists what is called the LHC@home, for the volunteer computing. You can “donate idle time on your computer to help physicists compare theory with experiment, in the search for new fundamental particles and answers to questions about the Universe. ” Yes, we can help unfold the mysteries of the Universe
