O’Neil, assistant professor of physics, who broke new ground in particle physics, was named BC Innovation Council’s 2007 Young Innovator. The award recognizes a person under 35 who has made a significant contribution to developing innovative science or technology and has played a main role in the development of a new innovation or research breakthrough. O’Neil leads SFU’s high-energy particle physics research group, which detected an elusive subatomic particle sought for more than a decade—a single top quark. Its discovery could lead to a better understanding of how the universe works and how objects acquire mass.
