Kenichi Hatakeyama, Ph.D.
Dr. Hatakeyama's research is in experimental high energy physics, and he has been working on the CDF experiment at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, Illinois and the CMS experiment at CERN, Geneva, Switzerland. He is particularly interested in searches for physics beyond the Standard Model, such as supersymmetry and extra dimensions, and precision measurements of quantum chromodynamics (QCD).
Hatakeyama was an undergraduate student at Waseda University in Tokyo, Japan, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Physics in 1996. He also earned his Master's degree from Waseda University in 1998. He then joined the Rockefeller University, and earned his Ph.D. in Physics in 2003. He served as a postdoctoral research associate at Rockefeller University until 2009. Dr. Hatakeyama joined the Baylor faculty as an assistant professor in 2009, where he continues his research in experimental high energy physics.
