Dr. Jon Roberts has a PhD in theoretical high-energy physics with ten years of research experience in high-energy particle physics and ultrahigh energy cosmic rays. At About.com, Dr. Roberts leads a team of researchers deriving insights from more than 20 years of Internet data across thousands of topics.
As a Marie Curie research fellow at Warsaw University, Dr. Roberts studied how dark matter might appear at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. After Poland, Dr. Roberts spent five years as a researcher at New York University, where he made predictions for solar system cosmic rays, currently being tested by NASA’s AMS detector on the International Space Station. He also worked on the Pierre Auger telescope in Argentina, tracking the detected ultrahigh energy cosmic rays back to their origins outside our galaxy.
