Just been reading about Professor Alessandro Strumia.
He's the physicist who attended a CERN gender conference a few months ago. I remember a little about it at the time but not much.
In his talk, he presented data which showed that, on average, female physicists are hired with less citations than their male counterparts, including a case study: Commissar Silvia Penati (2,130 citations) hired Anna Ceresole (3,231 citations) instead of Alessandro Strumia (30,785 citations) - that's himself ... cheeky XD
He got thrown out of the conference, CERN took down the recording of his presentation and his university is starting an 'ethical investigation' against him.
Luckily I found his power point slides that he used to give his presentation. I don't understand all of it but it still makes for fascinating reading.
