Professor Eilam Gross

Eilam Gross, Ph.D. is Full Professor, Department of Physics, Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel. Eilam is a member of the Weizmann Atlas Group and was Higgs group co-convener at the time of the discovery of the Higgs Boson (and still is Higgs group co-convener).
His papers include Asymptotic formulae for likelihood-based tests of new physics, Production and Decay of the Standard Model Higgs Boson at LEP200, Trial factors for the look elsewhere effect in high energy physics, Power-Constrained Limits, LHC/LC Interplay in the MSSM Higgs Sector, Higgs Statistics for Pedestrians, Testing minimal lepton flavor violation with extra vector-like leptons at the LHC, Discovery significance with statistical uncertainty in the background estimate, and Using the Profile Likelihood in Searches for New Physics.
Eilam earned his BSc in Physics with honors at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem in 1984. He earned his MSc in Physics with honors at the Feinberg Graduate School, Weizmann Institute of Science in 1986 with the the thesis Consistent Closed String. He earned his Ph.D. in Physics at the Feinberg Graduate School, Weizmann Institute of Science in 1991.
