Christine Sutton is a particle physicist who has edited the CERN Courier since 2003. She retired from CERN in 2015, consequently stepping down from her position as editor of the magazine.[1]

Sutton was previously based at the University of Oxford, working in the Particle Physics Group and tutoring physics at St Catherine's College.[2]

She was Physical Sciences Editor for New Scientist magazine in the early 1980s, and has authored several non-fiction science books, most recently (with Frank Close and Michael Marten) The Particle Odyssey (1987, 2002).[3]
