Dark Matter Day at Oxford Physics

Dark Matter Day at Oxford Physics
Oxford Physics | UK |

Event Overview

Oxford Physics

Join our researchers who explore dark matter on both the cosmic and most fundamental scales for a discussion about how we may solve one of the greatest mysteries of the universe. The event will consist of four short talks followed by a panel discussion and plenty of time for questions from the audience.

Professor Alan Barr: Professor Alan Barr’s group at Oxford are world leaders in the search for Dark Matter particles, with particular responsibility for choosing which of the billion collisions per second at the Large Hadron Collider might hold the key to discovery.

Theresa Fruth: Theresa is a second year DPhil research student working on LZ, a next generation Dark Matter direct detection experiment: https://users.physics.ox.ac.uk/~kraus/research/

Dr Sam Henry: Sam’s research is focussed on building instrumentation for experiments in particle physics and astroparticle physics. He has worked on dark matter searches, searching for particle dark matter using cryogenic detectors operating at millikelvin temperatures.

Kathryn Boast: Kathryn Boast is coming to the end of her graduate studies at Oxford. She was involved in planning and building LZ, the most sensitive dark matter experiment yet.

Dr Elisa Chisari: Elisa is a post-doctual researcher and studies tides across the Universe that change the shapes and orientations of galaxies.
