Professor de Florian’s research seeks to understand the Higgs boson, a particle that plays a pivotal role in our understanding of the universe’s origin. His calculations of Higgs boson properties were instrumental in its eventual discovery and validation at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world’s most powerful particle accelerator at CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research).

Professor de Florian continues to guide the Higgs boson theory group, fostering an environment where scientific inquiry thrives and discoveries await, shaping our understanding of the universe’s origins and inspiring future generations of scientists.

He remarks, “Why should one pay attention to a talk on the origin of the universe? The answer lies in the revelation that the visible and comprehensible aspects of the cosmos share a fundamental connection with the elementary particles constituting our bodies. Understanding the intricacies of the universe equates to unraveling the composition of our own bodies and grasping the essence of our origin.”
