Dorival Gonçalves is a theoretical particle physicist and assistant professor at the Department of Physics at OSU. He obtained his PhD in Physics from Heidelberg University (Germany) in 2013. Thereafter, he worked as a postdoctoral fellow at Durham University (UK) from 2013 to 2016 and at University of Pittsburgh (USA) from 2016 to 2019. He joined OSU as an assistant professor in 2019. Dorival Gonçalves works on various aspects of Particle Physics within the Standard Model and beyond. He is particularly interested in using the Higgs boson as a precision handle to search for new physics.
