Toyoko Orimoto

Prof. Toyoko Orimoto is an Associate Professor of Physics at Northeastern University. Prof. Orimoto is an experimental particle physicist who studies the smallest constituents of nature using one of the world’s largest science experiments–the CMS Experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland. As part of the CMS Collaboration, Prof. Orimoto is interested in using the recently discovered Higgs boson particle as a probe for new beyond-the-Standard-Model physics, such as supersymmetry and extra dimensions. In addition, Prof. Orimoto works on the CMS electromagnetic calorimeter and the new CMS MIP timing detector. Moreover, Prof. Orimoto is passionate about making her collaboration, department, college, university, and the wider scientific and academic communities more diverse, equitable, and inclusive.
