Aurelio Juste

An ICREA research professor in the Institute of High Energy Physics (IFAE) at the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB), he received a PhD at UAB in 1998 with a thesis on collisions of electrons and positrons, which he developed at the Large Electron-Positron Collider (LEP) at CERN in Geneva. The same year he went to Chicago to take part in the D0 experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider, where he studied proton-antiproton collisions. His research work has been concerned with experimental study of particle physics, especially with experiments carried out in accelerators, with the aim of understanding how nature functions at the most basic level. At present he is working in the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, where he is leading a team of more than twenty scientists researching the possible connections between the recently discovered Higgs boson and the top quark, the most massive of all elementary particles.
