Englert is a theoretical physicist who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2013, along with the British physicist Peter Higgs (born 1929). The prize was for their work on the Brout-Englert-Higgs mechanism, which explains how subatomic particles are given mass through their interaction with the Higgs field. He is currently Professor emeritus at the Universite libre de Bruxelles, and a member of the Institute for Quantum Studies at Chapman University, California, USA.
