Howard Haber received his Ph.D. in physics from the University of Michigan in 1978. After post doctoral positions at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory and the University of Pennsylvania, he arrived at the University of California, Santa Cruz, where he was promoted to professor of physics in 1990. He is one of four authors of the book, “The Higgs Hunter’s Guide,” first published in 1990. He is also a Fellow of the American Physical Society and a general member of the Aspen Center for Physics. In 2009, he was a recipient of the Alexander von Humboldt Research Award. Haber’s research activities focus on the exploration of new theoretical directions beyond the standard model of particle physics, with an emphasis on the search for Higgs bosons and supersymmetric phenomena at current and future high energy colliders.
