Current Research Activities
Reina is a Venezuelan experimental particle physicist working at the French National Research Center (CNRS) since 2018 and member of the ATLAS collaboration of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN since 2009. Reina was an undergraduate student at Universidad de Los Andes, Venezuela. She graduated with a PhD in physics at Université Blaise Pascal, Clermont-Ferrand, France in 2012. She was a postdoctoral research fellow at Université de Genève, Geneva, Switzerland between 2013 and 2015 and at University of Chicago, Illinois, US between 2015 and 2017. She splits her time between data analysis to understand the smallest components of matter, instrumentation R&D and scientific capacity building programs to build the next generation of scientists in Latin-American. She is an advocate of virtual research and learning communities, as a way to strengthen scientific connections between developed and developing countries and modernize the educational system.

Other AwardsOct 2016International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) Physics without Frontiers program funding for outreach activities in Latin-AmericaThe program aims to inspire, train and motivate physics and mathematics university students with some focus on science and technology lagging countries, to help build the next generation of scientists. Activities have been organized in Venezuela, Colombia, Peru, Uruguay and Argentina.Nov 2009Region d'Auvergne doctoral scholarshipScholarship to pursue doctoral studies in Auvergne, France.May 2008High Energy Physics Latinamerican-European Network (HELEN) fellowshipHELEN was an alpha EU program with the objective of train young generations of physicists in High Energy Physics, in which Europe is world leader, thereby promoting fundamental physics in Latin American countries and contributing to the modernization of physics education there. It allowed me to do an internship in the LPNHE in Paris of 8 months. These were my first steps in the particle physics world.
