Personal profile

Research Interests

Radja Boughezal’s research focuses on the ultra-precise understanding of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), the theory of the strong force. She applies her QCD investigations to model the high-energy interactions occurring at experiments such as the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland. Her recent work focuses on understanding the properties of the recently discovered Higgs boson, the particle that is believed to give mass to all elementary particles in Nature. The calculations performed by Boughezal are needed in order to predict the properties of the Higgs boson at the percent level, and determine whether they indeed describe what is measured in experiment. If they deviate from data, this could be a hint of the existence of new particles that may explain some of the open questions about our universe such as the mysterious dark matter present in galaxies.
