Dr. Hugues Beauchesne
Dr. Beauchesne completed his PhD in physics at Carleton University, Canada, and is currently a postdoctoral researcher at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. His research is the field of high-energy physics phenomenology and the study of the experimental consequences of particle physics theories. Dr. Beauchesne focuses on both finding new solutions to the hierarchy problem, the need for extreme fine-tuning of the Higgs boson mass, and designing new strategies to discover these models at colliders. The model building aspect of his work considers new avenues in supersymmetry, neutral naturalness, extra spatial dimensions and cosmological relaxation, while his investigation of their experimental signatures includes collider simulations, analyses of exotic collider objects and design of new search strategies. If successful, his work could provide new insights into the smallness of the electroweak scale and help orient the work of experimentalists at current and future particle colliders.
