Stephen Sekula

Associate Professor of Physics

Professor Stephen Sekula was among the SMU physicists at CERN in December 2011 who found hints of long sought after Higgs boson — dubbed the fundamental “God” particle.

Sekula conducts research at the energy frontier (the ATLAS Experiment). He co-convened the ATLAS Higgs Subgroup 6: Beyond-the-Standard Model Higgs Physics from 2012-2013. He is involved in the search for additional Higgs bosons. He also is an authority on high-performance computing (big data).
