Lisa Pellerin



Lisa is currently in her junior year, majoring in comprehensive physics with a minor in applied mathematics. After spending several years working as an assay technician at a lead mine in Alaska, Lisa returned to school with the goal of pursuing her interest in particle accelerators, specifically the Large Hadron Collider. She aims to focus on experimental design, helping to facilitate exploration of the frontiers of fundamental physics, and also plans to lend her writing and communication skills to the expansion of scientific outreach programs. She hopes to make the esoteric concepts of modern physics more accessible to laypeople.

Outside of the stresses of academia, Lisa enjoys gardening, art, and playing video games. While she no longer has as much time as she’d like to game, she still volunteers at the Penny Arcade Expo every year and can usually be found in the expo hall directing traffic or helping exhibitors.
