About Me

I am a an experimental particle physicist currently doing research on the ATLAS detector, one of the two multi-purpose particle detectors located on the Large Hadron Collider at CERN near Geneva, Switzerland.  I have been a professor at the University of Oklahoma in Norman since 1995.    I am also a Christian and this web-site and blog are a result of the many discussions I have had, and questions I receive about the relationship between science, rational thinking, objective evidence, and Christian faith.  As such, it is my personal web site and the views and opinions expressed are solely my own and do not necessarily reflect those of the University of Oklahoma or CERN.

I received my undergraduate degree in Physical Science from Biola University and my Masters degree and Ph. D. in experimental particle physics from the University of California, Los Angeles.  I have done research at the Stanford Linear Accelerator, the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, and now at CERN.  Through much of my career I have studied the interaction between quarks and gluons and the theory of Quantum Chromodynamics.  More recently I am studying the properties of the Higgs Boson and the heaviest known fundamental particle, the top quark.

The purpose of this web-site and the reason I started it are described in more detail in my first blog.  I believe that as a practicing scientist and as a Christian I may have something to offer in the discussion concerning the relationship between Christianity, science, and objective thought.  I hope that you will find some of what I write to be enjoyable and thought-provoking.  I have a strong motivation to discover truth in both the physical world and in the spiritual world.  Maybe my contribution will help us all in such a noble journey.

  1. I share his point of view on the BigBang, Dr. Strauss and I'm working on a new cosmological theory based on this view. My mail is sidmk78@gmail.com Have a nice day
