Dr. Philip Chang is an experimental particle physicist who studies the fundamental forces of nature and its building blocks. He has been a member of the CMS Collaboration at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) of the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva, Switzerland. In the past, Chang had also been a member of ATLAS Collaboration at the CERN LHC. Chang’s primary focus is on the investigation of the electroweak and the Higgs sector of the Standard Model (SM) through studying production of multiple massive particles. He has been involved in several searches and measurements of multiboson (boson = W, Z, H) signatures at the LHC. Chang has also been developing a novel charged-particle track finding algorithm to address the challenges of exponentially increasing computing resource usage at the High-Lumi LHC (HL-LHC), leveraging industry advancements in heterogeneous computing and artificial intelligence techniques.
