Top Tips - Emma Sanders

In the midst of unveiling the new CERN Science Gateway, Emma Sanders, Head of Exhibitions, stopped by to recommend us some music, books and travel destinations.

Listening to –

French radio programme Le Masque et la Plume, making lists of all the films I want to watch after CERN Science Gateway opens on 7th October!

Reading –

The Living Mountain by Nan Shepherd which transports me to the Scottish Cairngorms, through sun, rain, wind and snow. It’s a beautiful, slow, poetic appreciation of the natural world.

Following –

Prof Amanda Kirby, neurodiversity campaigner. The latest edition of her Neurodiversity 101 newsletter gives insight on how to avoid ND bias when hiring and in the workplace. Diverse teams are an extraordinary asset. Moreover, working at such a huge international collaboration as CERN, almost every member of the exhibitions team here has a different nationality!

Despite best intentions, when you are a couple of weeks away from opening a new centre, it can be difficult to keep your head away from the todo lists.

Somewhere I’ve been recently –

The yoga studio

Somewhere I’m planning to go –

Musée Poincaré in Paris
