Gilad Perez received his Ph.D. from the Weizmann Institute of Science in 2003. He was a postdoctoral fellow at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. He joined the faculty of the C. N. Yang Institute for Theoretical Physics at Stony Brook University in 2006 and the Weizmann Institute in 2008. Gilad’s research concerns study of models beyond the standard model of fundamental particle interactions and their experimental implications in astrophysics and colliders.
Study of variations in the mass and interactions of quarks may reveal whether fundamental constants are governed by “environmental selection rules” that lead to complex universes capable of having observers.
