Introducing Dr Irina Shreyber, a particle and accelerator physicist boasting over 20 years of high–energy and accelerator physics experience. Dr Shreyber earned her BSc degree in physics from the Moscow State Institute of Steel and Alloys (University of Technology) and completed her PhD in physics and mathematics in 2009 with the Institute for Theoretical and Experimental Physics (Russia) and the University of Chicago.

Dr Shreyber has been part of the CERN community since 2005 after she began her career in HEP at Fermilab in 2001. She initially joined CERN as a member of the CMS experiment at the LHC and later transitioned into a developer and maintainer role for the MAD-X accelerator simulation program, followed by her involvement in the ATLAS experiment. Her extensive experience in particle physics, data analysis and Monte Carlo simulations is focused on Higgs Boson searches and Physics Beyond the Standard Model. Dr Shreyber has profound knowledge of accelerator physics theory, particularly beam transport maps, their derivation, and beam optics.

As a highly experienced lecturer in particle and accelerator physics, Dr Irina Shreyber has been contributing to the CERN Accelerator School (CAS) since 2022, sharing her knowledge with diverse students. Her vast expertise and passion for teaching make her a valuable asset to educational programs at CERN and various universities. Multilingual in Russian, English, and French, she actively engages with international scientific and business communities.

Furthermore, in 2022, Dr Shreyber became the Global Head of SIG Energy for the International Project Management Association (IPMA). At the same time, she joined the Professional MBA Energy Management program at WU Executive Academy in Vienna, Austria, as a WU Female Leaders Fellow.
