Media appearances

* Brief appearance in the documentary Particle Fever by Mark Levinson. * Featured in Wired magazine and Popular Mechanics (the description of the science is not bad, but the word "almost" in the title is misleading). * Interviewed by the CBC in relation to the Higgs discovery at the LHC in 2012 and 2013. * Featured in New Scientist in relation to the proton radius puzzle.
