Dr Susan Haines is a particle physicist working at the Cavendish Laboratory on data from the LHCb experiment at CERN.

You meet people from all over the world, but everyone has the same goal … we’re all going forwards in the same direction, which is a really nice feeling
— Dr Susan Haines

Susan's research encompasses one of the most fundamental questions in the universe - why is there predominantly more matter than anti-matter?

You can read more about the work of the Cambridge LHCb group here, or more about the detector itself on the CERN website.

This bonus episode was co-produced with Hannah Stern, and recorded in partnership with Cavendish inspiring Women, a group based at the University of Cambridge who aim to raise the visibility of women working in physics. It forms part of a series of short interviews profiling scientists and the research they do.
