Dr Nitesh Soni is an expert in experimental particle physics. His main interest is to study the mysteries of the universe by mining the data collected by the giant particle detector after the collisions of elementary particles.
He feels privileged to be part of the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
He is currently working as a scientist in the Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence for Particle Physics (CoEPP) at the University of Adelaide, Australia.
In the past he worked in the similar job at the University of Alberta (UofA), Canada. Prior to the year 2008, he made a very significant contribution in the BaBar Experiment at Stanford Linear Accelerator Centre (SLAC), USA and Belle Experiment at KEK, Japan.
The discovery of a Higgs boson (year 2012) at the ATLAS experiment (along with CMS experiment) led to the 2013 Nobel prize of Physics and the experimental confirmation of the large CP-violation in the B-meson system at the BaBar and the Belle experiments led to the 2008 Nobel prize of physics.
