S'Cool LAB Manager
Gernot started a career as experimental physicist with a PhD thesis at the University of Toulouse (2010-2013), after which he joined the University of Geneva (2013-2020). His research in the field of solid-state physics was focused on the microscopic understanding of superconductivity. Gernot became an expert of exactly the phenomena, which are pillars of CERN’s particle accelerators: superconductivity, very cold temperatures, and magnetic fields. Thanks to his love for hands-on minds-on science education, Gernot Scheerer joined the S'Cool Lab in August 2020. Indeed, since the beginning of his academic career, Gernot is very active in science education and outreach. Most notably, he participated in the Geneva Science Nights 2014 and 2016 and was an active member of Geneva’s Physiscope from 2018 to 2020.
