Additional Information

Mark Oreglia has been heavily involved in planning for the International Linear Collider, a proposed subatomic particle collider designed to solve some of the deepest mysteries of the universe. He also was among an international group of scientists that discovered the Higgs boson in experiments at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, the European particle physics laboratory. The long-sought Higgs boson, scientists believe, is the particle that gives mass to all matter in the universe, including atoms, stars and humans. The author or co-author of more than 500 publications, Oreglia had previously contributed to a major experiment of the former Large Electron-Positron Accelerator at CERN.
