Tony Doyle is a professor of physics and research group leader of the
particle physics experiment (PPE) group at the University of Glasgow.
As a DESY Visiting Scientist and member of the
ZEUS Collaboration, he worked on the analysis of Structure Functions and
Hadronic Final States in Deep Inelastic Scattering. He was GridPP Project
Leader and Technical Director, working with a collaboration of Particle Physicists and Computing
Scientists from the UK and CERN, who built the UK Grid for Particle Physics.
As an STFC Senior Research Fellow, CERN Associate and member of the
ATLAS Collaboration, he has been working on analysis methods to search for and
discover the Higgs Boson at the LHC.
This task requires petabyte-scale data resources
and led to research in Grid Data Management, improved simulation and enhanced analysis methods, including multivariate analyses and advanced
statistical methods to extract the Higgs signal from the significant backgrounds.
He was Chairman of the ATLAS Publications Committee in 2012 when the Higgs Boson was discovered.
He is a Fellow of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, Institute of
Physics and the Royal Society of Edinburgh. Most recently he was awarded the 2016 RSE/Lord Kelvin
