Kotwal Speaks at the Large Hadron Collider Physics Conference

Tuesday, October 1, 2013

Prof. Ashutosh Kotwal was invited as a plenary speaker at the Large Hadron Collider Physics Conference  in Barcelona, Spain, this past summer.  He spoke about precision electroweak physics, including his own research leading to the world's most precise measurement of the W boson mass, and the information provided by these measurements to guide theories beyond the Standard Model of particle physics. Some of the big questions addressed by these precision measurements are, whether the presence of supersymmetric particles can be detected and whether the properties of the Higgs boson can be explained by postulating its internal structure.
