PROFESSOR DANIEL TURGEMAN

Daniel Turgeman is currently working on his doctorate in the Department of Particle Physics and Astrophysics
of the Weizmann Institute of Science. His research is part of the ATLAS collaboration and focuses on searches for signs of Beyond Standard Model (BSM) physics in data from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland.

He has coauthored papers searching for evidence of extra-dimensions, low-scale gravity and micro black holes in the most energetic events available at the LHC. This includes a search for strong gravity in multi-jet final states produced in pp collisions at s√=13 TeV using the ATLAS detector at the LHC (https://arxiv.org/abs/1512.02586) and a search for low-scale gravity signatures in multi-jet final states with the ATLAS detector at s√=8TeV (https://arxiv.org/abs/1503.08988).

Currently he is independently developing a novel technique for discovering other BSM signals (e.g., R parity violating supersymmetry). His MSc was done in the quantum optics lab in the BINA Center for Nanotechnology, Bar-Ilan University, where he had completed a BSc with honors. While at Bar-Ilan he was
an instructor for the quantum mechanics 1 and 2 courses. He now lectures at the Davidson Center for Science Education.

Turgeman’s formal Torah education consists of studies at the Higher Yeshivah of Tel Aviv Maạleh Eliyahu and rabbinical studies at the Higher Institute of Torah at Bar-Ilan. Other Torah and science publications by him include “Solution to the Parasha of Creation,” to be published in Megadim, Herzog College Press. Married,
with four children, he lives in Nitsan.
