"Nothing happens until something moves", Albert Einstein

Interview with Alan Tua, physicist

Alan Tua

Einstein's quote works well for the Zone's overall objective - to trigger young people into finding their own passions, learning, working, working hard. 
Until we move, nothing will ever happen.

Existentialism aside, see what mathematics and physics mean to Alan in this feature and get inspired by the world of particle physics.

Alan’s achievements in the field of particle physics have taken him from an award winner to an intern at CERN, the European organization for nuclear research, one of the world’s most prestigious places for students and professionals in physics alike.

See what steps Alan took to get where he is today.
