David Myers holds a doctorate in High Energy Physics from the University of Liverpool. He came to CERN as a Research Fellow in 1973. Working in informatics, he helped to introduce much new technology which later became ubiquitous, including 3D Computer Graphics, Object-Oriented Computing, and Personal Workstations. He started the project which provided the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiments (about 9,000 physicists from 60 countries), and many accelerator sub-systems, with a unified control system. Recently he was responsible for managing CERN's computer security.
