Physics Professor James Wells recently became a Fellow of the American Physical Society. Election to APS Fellowship is recognition by his peers for his outstanding contributions to physics, and is limited to one half per cent of the full APS membership.
He was elected to Fellowship, “For his many fundamental contributions to theories of new physics beyond the Standard Model, including the role of electroweak symmetry breaking, Higgs boson physics, and collider searches for supersymmetry and extra dimensions.”
Professor Wells is currently studying the implications of the recent discovery of the Higgs boson, and especially what its mass and interactions with other particles can tell us about how the universe evolved soon after the big bang into the universe we see today.
