Ph.D., Stanford University, 1981.
Professor, Dept. of Physics, Enrico Fermi Institute, and the College.
Experimental physics, particle physics.

I am a member of the ATLAS experiment at CERN, and this will be the main focus of my work for the foreseeable future. My main interest is the search for new physics, particularly alternative models to the minimal Standard Model or minimal supersymmetric SM. This continues my work on searches for SM and exotic Higgs bosons at LEP.

I am also leading efforts to upgrade the ATLAS detector's hadronic calorimeter to meet the needs and challenges of the High-Luminosity LHC which will have much higher collision rates than the current LHC. My group is prototyping radiation-hard electronics that can record and transmit data at very high bandwidths. As of 2018, we have been conducting radiation tests of prototypes and demonstrating their functionality in particle beams. I am currently the US-ATLAS level-2 manager for the hadron calorimeter upgrade, and the International ATLAS manager for hadron calorimeter upgrade resources.

In addition to my ATLAS activities, I was formerly involved in planning and detector R&D for the International Linear Collider (see the GDE GDE site). I was co-spokesperson of the American Linear Collider Physics Group and a member of the CALICE R&D collaboration as well as editor of the SiD detector concept SiD Technical Design Report. Prior to my ILC activity, I enjoyed exploring methods to construct a Higgs factory by colliding muons.

Currently Professor Oreglia is the director of the Physical Sciences Masters Program, and the Deputy Dean for PSD Infrastructure.

Professor Oreglia is a Fellow of the American Physical Society. His CV can be found here.

Here is a list of a few publications I am proud of:
