Dr. Diallo Boye

DialloBoyePic.jpeg is a particle physicist employed by Brookhaven National Laboratory (USA) as a post-doc researcher. He is currently based at CERN (The European Organization for Nuclear Research) in Switzerland where he is conducting his research by making use of the ATLAS experiment facility. After acquiring a master’s degree in theoretical physics at the University of Cheikh Anta Diop in Dakar, Senegal, he was selected to participate in the African School of Physics (ASP) in Ghana in 2012. Topics covered included High Energy Physics (HEP), sparking his desire to delve more deeply into this field and increase capacity development in Africa. Boye enrolled for a Master II Subatomic Physics Astroparticle at the University of Strasbourg, France in 2014. As part of this, he did an internship at the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), France, focusing on the establishment of thermal model nuclear reactors of Oklo. “The existence of natural nuclear reactors dating back two billion years was confirmed in Oklo, Gabon in 1972 and my master’s thesis aimed to establish a thermal model to describe the profile temperature of the reactor,” he says.

Next, he participated as a summer student at CERN with the Manchester team in LHCb experiment, working on the alignment of the LHCb-TimePix3-Telescope, doing data analysis and taking care of the detector performance.

Then, he got an Excellence Fellowship from Electricity de France (EDF), which enabled him to register for a professional Master II in Physics of Energy and Energy Transition at the University Paul Sabatier of Toulouse, France.

During his studies, he received an opportunity to do an internship at CERN with the Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) in Paris Saclay, where he was working on the measurement of the W boson mass in the electron channel with the CMS detector.

Boye then commenced with his PhD in “The search for a dark vector boson and a new scalar with the ATLAS detector” at CERN, in ATLAS experiment, with Johannesburg University and University of South Africa. The research he conducted includes search algorithm design, analysis code development and full simulation of signal and background processes via the fundamental physics interactions and the propagation of generated events in the detector.

He completed his PhD in 2020 before starting his current position with Brookhaven National Laboratory. -- KeteviAssamagan - 2021-04-08
