Haley, Joe



A decade after the discovery of the Higgs Boson, the large Hadron Collider at CERN still leads the world in the search to uncover what the universe is made of, how it was formed, and what fate may lie in store for it. If there is such a thing as a cutting edge, it surely lies 100 metres below the Swiss-French border, at the point the beams collide. As part of a unique collaboration, this book pairs a team of award-winning authors with CERN physicists to explore some of the consequences of what the LHC is learning, through fiction. Authors include Sherlock and Dr. Who writer Steven Moffat, novelist and Small Axe screenwriter Courttia Newland, Dame Margaret Drabble and SF legends Ian Watson (whose credits include the screenplay for the Spielberg's A.I.) and Stephen Baxter (winner of the Philip K Dick and John W Campbell Memorial Award). Featuring CERN physicist and engineers: Professor Lyn Evans, Professor John Ellis, Dr. Andrea Bersani, Dr. Tessa Charles, Dr. Joey Huston, Dr. Michael Davis, Dr. Carole Weydert, Dr. Joe Haley, Dr. Kristin Lohwasser, Dr. Pete Dong, Dr. Daniel Cervenkov, Dr. Andrea Giammanco.


Dr. Haley completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Washington in Seattle where he received a B.S. in Physics and a B.S. in Astronomy in 2003. He received his Ph.D. from Princeton University in 2009 in the area of experimental high energy physics for his research at the DZero experiment at Fermilab. From 2009 to 2013 he was a Postdoctoral Fellow with Northeastern University in Boston, working on the DZero experiment and then the CMS experiment at CERN. Dr. Haley joined Oklahoma State University as an Assistant Professor in 2013. His research is now based on the ATLAS experiment at CERN.
