Physics professor and Ph.D. Bill Murray is a husband and father of 5, is an Edinburgh-born researcher. His involvement at CERN includes understanding the interactions and properties of the Higgs boson using the ATLAS detector at the LHC. He also searches for new physics, especially dark matter. Dr. Murray was the ATLAS Higgs convener from 2009 until 2011, physics coordinator from 2012 until 2014, and was right in the center of the Higgs discovery in July 2012. Most of his career, Dr. Murray was a researcher at the Rutherford Lab, in Oxfordshire and in 2013 became a professor at Warwick University, where he now teaches half time.
