More about this group

Head of Research Group

The Bristol Particle Physics group is one of the oldest in the country and currently is made up of 10 full time academic staff, 9 research assistants and 14 PhD students.

Particle Physics is all about understanding the fundamental building blocks of matter and how they interact with each other. To do this modern Particle Physicists build large experiments where particles are made to smash into one another. Detectors are built around where these collisions occur, and the particles resulting from the interaction are studied.

Now is a very exciting time in Particle Physics. The Bristol Particle Physics group is involved in two experiments that will run on the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) at CERN: CMS and LHCb. We are also involved in a variety of research and development projects for future experiments.
