James Gillies

Head of the Communications Group at CERN

James Gillies is head of communications at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research. He holds a doctorate in physics from the University of Oxford, and began his research career working at CERN in the mid-1980s.

In 1993, he left the field of research to become Head of Science with the British Council in Paris. After managing the Council’s bilateral programme of scientific visits, exchanges, bursaries and cultural events for two years, he returned to CERN in 1995 - as a science writer.

He has been Head of the Organization’s communications team since 2003, and he is also the co-author of ‘How the Web was Born’ - the story of the Internet, published back in 2000 and described by the London Times as one of the year’s ten best books recommended for inquisitive minds.
