Welcome to new faculty colleague Rafael Lopes de Sa!
Assistant Professor Rafael Coelho Lopes de Sa is an experimental high energy physicist using the LHC to study the physics of subatomic particles. His research focuses on understanding what is the role of the Higgs boson in fundamental particle interactions. He is also interested in developing new particle detectors and machine learning methods to improve measurement techniques in particle physics. He will be teaching Physics 289, Waves and Thermodynamics Lab in Fall 2017. Welcome, Rafael!
