Professor Michael S. Gold, elementary particles

Ph.D. 1986: University of California, Berkeley


Professor Gold
standard model

Professor Gold is an elementary particle experimentalist.  He has worked in electron-positrion collider physics, proton-antiproton collider physics (including discovery of the top quark), high energy cosmic rays and direct dark matter searches.   His current research interests are in properties of neutrinos.
