Congratulations to new Royal Society of Edinburgh Fellow Professor Victoria Martin

Professor Victoria Martin joins the 57 names recognised as being some of the greatest thinkers, researchers and practitioners working in or with Scotland today.

The Royal Society of Edinburgh (RSE) has announced its 2024 intake of Fellows. Nominated for their individual excellence in a wide range of fields, they will be joining the 1,800 current Fellows of the RSE, Scotland’s National Academy.

Professor Martin’s research is in particle physics - studying the structure of the Universe at the smallest accessible scales. Her main interest is in understanding more about the Higgs boson and its relationship to the other fundamental particles that make up our Universe. She works on the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, and has an interest in potential future colliders such as CLIC and FCC.

The RSE is an educational charity established in 1783. The RSE’s strength lies in the breadth of disciplines represented by its Fellowship. This range of expertise enables the RSE to take part in a host of activities such as: providing independent and expert advice to Government and Parliament; supporting aspiring entrepreneurs through mentorship; facilitating education programmes for young people, and engaging the general public through educational events.
