Jason Holt

Dr. Jason D. Holt is a theoretical physicist at TRIUMF: Canada’s Particle Accelerator Centre and Adjunct faculty at McGill University. He received his PhD from Stony Brook University, in addition to degrees in physics, mathematics, and English literature from the University of Michigan. His research lies at the intersection of atomic, nuclear, and particle physics, aiming to unravel the origin of the elements, trace the lifecycles of stars, or unlock the mysteries of neutrinos and dark matter. Jason is highly active in his field, having published nearly 100 peer-reviewed articles and given over 140 invited talks at international meetings. Finally, Jason is enthusiastically involved in public outreach and speaking to non-specialists about modern physics, in particular connecting science and art, as exemplified in his recent TEDx Talk, My Heroes Are Not Physicists.
