Sukanya Sinha

Sukanya joined ATLAS in 2019 when she started her PhD at the University of Witwatersrand in South Africa. Originally from India and coming from a theoretical physics background, she is interested in studying unusual collider topologies in search of new physics and also has an inclination towards collider phenomenology. She has been involved in the mentoring of students working towards their Masters’ thesis from her university since the start of her PhD.

She has been a part of outreach activities in South Africa, in the form of radio show interviews, and believes that science education plays a crucial role in shaping the present and future generations. She likes traveling, meeting new people, and binge watches TV series in her free time.

Connecting during COVID-19: Updates from the (physically but not socially distanced) Early Career Scientist Board
