Theoretical Particle Physics & Cosmology

Theoretical Particle Physics & Cosmology

 Our research focuses on:

• Particle physics beyond the Standard Model

• Dark matter, cosmic rays and astro-particle physics

• LHC physics

• Supersymmetry breaking in particle physics and in low-dimensional gauge theories with applications to exotic quantum phases in condensed matter

• Dark energy

• Inflation and cosmic defects

• Brane-world cosmological models, with an emphasis on their phenomenological predictions

• Quantum Gravity and its consequences for particle propagation in terrestrial and astrophysical experiments

• World-sheet logarithmic conformal field theories and their applications in string theory and condensed matter physics

• Loop Quantum Cosmology

• Phenomenology of Non-Commutative Geometry

• Non-perturbative aspects in Field Theory

• Applications of field theory to biophysical problems including speech

We receive support from the European Research Council Advanced Investigator Grant 267352 to John Ellis, with Nick Mavromatos as co-investigator.  We also receive support from the STFC.

 

 

Group SeminarsThe Theoretical Particle Physics & Cosmology series covers research subjects from the fundamental aspects of String Theory up to dark energy and dark matter and the physics of the early universe. This series is held weekly on Wednesdays (except the first) in room S7.06 from 4:00 pm. For info, please contact bobby.acharya@kcl.ac.uk
