Who are we?

Instructors of the CEVALE2VE network

Anabel Romero

Graduated with a Physics BSc from Universidad Simón Bolívar (2016, Caracas, Venezuela), currently a PhD student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (2017-present, USA). I took the first edition of the CEVALE2VE course in 2014, and it motivated me to study particle physics and to engage on a summer internship at CERN in 2015.

And the godmothers and godfathers in each country:

The local sponsor group were the liaisons with the universities/institutions and the network. They have become a permanent feedback source for CEVALE2VE since its creation.
