Harry Weerts, Division Director

Harry Weerts

Division Director
- High Energy Physics

Harry Weerts has worked in neutrino physics at CERN and hadron collider physics at the Tevatron with the Dzero experiment. The emphasis in collider physics was on understanding the strong interaction (QCD) and top quarks including the discovery of the top quark.

Since 2004, he has concentrated on linear collider physics and is engaged in one the detectors concepts for a linear collider. After 23 years as a physics faculty at Michigan State University, with extended stays at Fermilab, he is now the High Energy Physics division director at Argonne. The division covers research from ATLAS at LHC, to neutrino physics, theoretical physics, wake field accelerator R&D, detector R&D and Linear Collider physics and detectors.
