Toyoko Orimoto is an assistant professor of physics at Northeastern University, in Boston, MA. Professor Orimoto's research focuses on experimental particle physics, aiming to answer fundamental questions about the nature of our universe: Is it possible that there are extra-dimensions of space-time? What new particles or symmetries exist beyond the standard model of particle physics? What is the origin of mass for elementary particles? Prof. Orimoto endeavors to answer such questions as a member of the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) Collaboration at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, in Geneva, Switzerland. Prior to joining the Northeastern faculty, Prof. Orimoto was a fellow at CERN (2009-2012) and the Robert A. Millikan fellow at the California Institute of Technology (2006-2009). She received her Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkeley.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
