David A. Kosower received his Ph.D. in physics from Harvard in 1986. He was a postdoctoral fellow at Columbia University, at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, and at CERN, before joining the staff of the Institut de Physique Théorique of the CEA in Saclay in 1993. He has been a visiting professor at the University of Zurich and at the Weizmann Institute and is currently on leave as a Member of the Institute for Advance Study in Princeton, where he is supported by a grant from the Ambrose Monell Foundation. In 2014, he shared the J. J. Sakurai Prize for theoretical particle physics with Zvi Bern and Lance Dixon. His current research focuses on precision calculations in quantum chromodynamics. He is interested both in continually improving techniques for these calculations and in applying them to phenomenology at CERN's Large Hadron Collider.

Viewpoint: Extending an Alternative to Feynman Diagrams

A simplifying technique for calculating scattering amplitudes—the basis for predictions in particle physics experiments—has been extended to cover a class of effective quantum field theories. Read More »
