Rohini Godbole

Physicist, known for work at Large Hadron Collider

Prof. Rohini Godbole is a particle physicist best known for her work at CERN, European Organization for Nuclear Research. Her work on high energy photons could form the basis for the next generation of particle colliders, used to study the fabric and composition of the Universe. She works on aspects of the Standard Model of particle physics, which describes the properties and behaviour of elementary particles of the Universe. 

Apart from her work in academics, Prof. Godbole is also a much sought-after communicator of science, often delivering talks to young students, scholars and scientists on everything physics. She is also an avid supporter of women pursuing careers in science and technology, and along with Ram Ramaswamy, edited the book Lilavati’s Daughters, a collection of biographical essays on women scientists from India. 

She is today a part of the International Detector Advisory Group for the International Linear Collider (ILC) at CERN, which monitors the design and working of the ILC detector. She is also the Chairperson of the ‘Panel for Women in Science’ initiative of the Indian Academy of Sciences.

Women have to be really lucky to be a good scientist, a mother, and look after the family.
