Harry Cliff is a young physicist who splits his time between researching cutting-edge particle physics at Cambridge and CERN, and communicating the mysteries of fundamental physics at London’s Science Museum.
As the first Science Museum fellow, Harry is the curator of Collider, the first in a new series of blockbuster exhibitions centred on the greatest scientific endeavour of the modern age – the Large Hadron Collider.
Harry’s immersive exhibition has won critical praise after opening in November 2013. Harry worked with a team drawn from theatre, museums, and design to transport visitors to CERN, conveying the thrill and drama of working on an experiment that is changing the way we think about the Universe. It is now set to tour in the UK and internationally.
Harry has given many live and recorded interviews, including those on BBC Radio 4, BBC News and the Peter Levy Show, discussing the Collider and the Nobel Prize for Physics. He also teaches a 6-week short course at the Royal Institution entitled ‘An Introduction to Particle Physics’.
@LindaGeddes Great to meet you too! It would be a fab thing to borrow if we could persuade the museum...
@rexfactorpod That's a tough one, but I think it has to be Charles II for sheer wit if nothing else!
