James Pinfold is a world-famous particle physicist who, in 1997, became the youngest scholar to lead an international experiment on a collider.
In 1972, when he was a graduate student at University College London, James Pinfold played a pivotal role at CERN in the discovery of neutral currents, the first tangible proof of electroweak unification.
In 1992, he became a founding member of the ATLAS Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiment at CERN which, in 2012, announced the discovery of Higgs boson.
Emeritus professor at the University of Alberta, he is currently the spokesperson for the MoEDAL experiment at the LHC. He focuses his efforts on research into a new physics, on the boundary of high energy and the cosmos in search of vestiges of the moment when the universe was born.
