James Beacham is an experimental high-energy particle physicist at CERN's Large Hadron Collider. As part of the ATLAS collaboration, one of the teams that discovered the Higgs boson in 2012, Dr. Beacham is on the hunt for evidence of new particles -- dark matter, quantum black holes, gravitons, dark photons and exotic Higgs bosons among them -- that could answer the biggest open questions in physics.
