Abstract
The Argonne National Laboratory, located outside Chicago, is a DOE multidisciplinary science and engineering research center. There are 15 research divisions, 6 national scientific user facilities and 14 joint program institutes/centers. It is home to, among other things, the Advanced Photon Source (providing one of the brightest storage-ring-generated X-rays beams), the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (housing MIRA, one of the foremost supercomputers in the world), and the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research.

High Energy Physics (HEP) division is a part of the science community at Argonne. I will describe how the division benefits from, and contributes to, the many research activities taking place at Argonne all the while pursuing the mysteries of the Higgs Particle, neutrinos, Dark Matter, and Dark Energy.

Bio
Rik Yoshida is the HEP Deputy Division Director at the Argonne National Laboratory. He received his PhD from the Northwestern University on the photoproduction experiment E687 at Fermilab. He subsequently worked at NIKHEF in the Netherlands and the University of Bristol, UK before joining Argonne. He led the ZEUS collaboration at the DESY laboratory in Germany from 2003-5 to measure electron-proton deep inelastic scattering at 300 GeV center-of-mass energy. He currently works on the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. Rik is a Fellow of the American Physical Society.
