Winter Simulation Conference 2014
Scientific Computing Division Head
Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory
Robert Roser is senior member of the scientific staff at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory.
He began his career at the University of Connecticut where he majored in physics.
While earning his bachelor's degree, he worked in a Van de Graaff accelerator laboratory doing atomic physics and began the process of learning how to be an
Upon graduation, he entered the University of Rochester's PHD program in experimental particle physics and worked at Fermilab on a fixed-target experiment studying the QCD process of direct photons.
After graduation, he
accepted a postdoctoral fellowship with the University of Illinois
in Urbana Champagne and joined the CDF experiment.
He was part of the team that discovered the top quark in 1995 and led the top quark physics analysis group from 1996-1998.
Dr. Roser joined the Fermilab scientific staff as a Wilson Fellowship in 1997.
He has held a number of leadership positions on the CDF experiment including supervising much of the Run II upgrades, leading the Detector Commissioning and early Operations effort and has served as its leader and scientific spokesperson for the past eight years where this group found first evidence of the Higgs Boson.
Most recently, he has accepted the position as head of the Scientific Computing Division at Fermilab and is now a member of the CMS experiment at CERN.
He is a member of numerous scientific advisory panels, is a fellow of the American Physical Society and is the author of over 600 refereed publications.
Robert Roser is the Plenary Keynote Speaker.
Dr. Roser is the Scientific Computing Division Head at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, Batavia, Illinois.
He will speak about the recently discovered Higgs Boson particle and the role of simulation in the discovery.
He is one of the world's leading experts on experimental particle physics.

Robert Roser - PhD, Head, Scientific Computing Division, Fermilab
Robert (Rob) Roser is an experimental particle physicist and is currently a senior member of the scientific staff at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory; Americas premier particle physics laboratory located just west of Chicago Illinois.
Rob is currently head of the Scientific Computing Division where he is responsible for ensuring that the scientific programs at the lab have the computing hardware, software, data acquisition and electronics support that they need to be successful.
is responsible for the operations as well as the computing strategy that will meet the needs of both the current and future ambitious experimental endeavors.
(Fermilab's data center currently has a 4.5MW capacity with the ability to currently house in excess of 400 petabytes of data).
Prior to this, Rob
led the premier colliding beam experiment at Fermilab's
Tevatron Accelerator for much of the last decade.
This collaboration of >700 scientists from 60 academic institutions scattered across 15 countries is best known for the discovery of the Top Quark, and, along with its sister experiment D-Zero, found first evidence of the long sought after Higgs Boson.
Dr. Roser received his Bachelors Degree from the University of Connecticut and his PhD from the University of Rochester.
He was a post-doctoral research associate at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign before joining the laboratory as a Wilson Fellow.
He is a member of numerous scientific advisory panels, is a fellow of the American Physical Society and is the author of over 600-refereed publications.
currently resides in Elburn Illinois with his
wife and two spoiled Brittany pup's.
