Thomas J. Watson, Sr. Professor of Physics


Prof. Landsberg has joined the Brown faculty in 1998, following post-doctoral research at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, Batavia, IL. Since then Prof. Landsberg has served as a convener of the D0 Exotics (1997-2000) and New Phenomena (2002-2004) groups, as well as the Deputy Physics Coordinator of the D0 collaboration (2004-2005). Since 2005 his main research focus is the CMS experiment at the CERN LHC. He was a convener of the CMS Exotica physics analysis group in 2009-2010, CMS Physics Coordinator in 2012-2013 (culminating in the discovery of the Higgs boson), and Publication Committee Deputy Chair (2014-2015). He also served as the CMS HCAL Detector Performance Group convener (2014-2015), and a convener of the CMS B Physics group (2018-2020), pursuing exploration of flavor anomalies that currently constitute the most significant experimental deviation from the Standard Model predictions.

Prof. Landsberg is a member of a number of Advisory boards and organizing committees for several international conferences and workshops. He is a Divisional Associate Editor of the Phys. Rev. Lett. journal.

He is also an author of a number of publications on collider phenomenology, including the pioneering work on mini black hole production at the LHC, which is among TOPCITE 1000+ articles.
