Dr Richard Breedon received his PhD in Experimental High Energy Physics from The Rockefeller University in 1988. He has collaborated on experiments at Fermilab (USA), CERN (Switzerland), and KEK (Japan). He is a founding member of the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, which discovered the Higgs boson in 2012. He is presently chair of the CMS Muon Editorial Board and muon sub-editor for the CMS Publications Committee.
