About the Author

Jeffrey "Heshy" Roskes was born in July, 1993 in Baltimore, Maryland, where he has lived his entire life. He attended Johns Hopkins University, also in Baltimore, receiving a B.S. in 2014 in Physics with University and Departmental Honors and a second major in Mathematics. During his undergraduate career, he received the Donald E. Kerr Memorial Award in Physics, and he earned membership in Phi Beta Kappa and Sigma Pi Sigma. As an undergraduate, Heshy began working as a research assistant on the CMS experiment, focusing on alignment of the CMS tracker. He was awarded a Dean's Undergraduate Research Award to travel to CERN and work on the project there. Heshy enrolled in the physics Ph.D. program at Hopkins, continuing his work in the CMS project. He was awarded the Donald E. Kerr Sr. and Barbara Kerr Stanley Fellowship as well as the William Gardner Fellowship. He continued his work in tracker alignment, eventually serving as convener of the CMS tracker alignment group, and developed many analyses to study and characterize the Higgs boson. Heshy authored numerous papers as a member of the CMS Collaboration and was a main author of a series of papers analyzing properties of the Higgs boson. He is an author of the JHUGen and MELA package, and in that role co-authored a Higgs Cross Section Working Group report and an independent paper. He taught several basic and advanced physics courses as a graduate student. Heshy is currently working in data science as applied to medical imaging at the Institute for Data Intensive Engineering and Science, also at Hopkins.
