Detector Research and Development
Researching and developing new solid-state and other particle detector technologies for use in future particle physics experiments, and in other fields such as healthcare and security.
Direct Searches and Dark Matter
Searching at the CMS experiment at CERN for the production of new particles and processes, such as dark matter, new force-carrying gauge bosons, messengers from hidden physics sectors, supersymmetric (SUSY) particles, and exotic properties in Higgs boson decays and the production of top quarks. Looking for dark matter recoiling off nuclei in the Lux-Zeplin experiment.
Flavour Physics and Beyond
Studying quark and lepton transitions to provide insights into the structure of the standard model, and to allow the discovery and study of new physics. Working on matter and antimatter asymmetry and rare quark decays on the LHCb experiment at CERN, flavour symmetry-violating muon decays at Mu3e, rare kaon decays on the NA62 experiment at CERN, and neutrino oscillations, supernovae and proton decays with DUNE.
