Synopsis:

The Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) records tens of petabytes of particle collision data every year. In order to analyse these vast amounts of often complex collisions the CMS collaboration is relying on a world-spanning network of computer centres - the grid. He will introduce the LHC and the CMS experiment; explain the challenges imposed by both complexity and amount of data and how they are tackled.

Luke is a Research Assistant at Bristol university working on top quark physics at the CMS experiment.
