Theoretical Particle Physics

Welcome to the Theoretical Particle Physics group of the School of Physics at the University of Melbourne!

The theoretical particle physics group has diverse research interests that range from astroparticle and cosmological physics that describes the physics of the early Universe, to the physics of the Standard Model and beyond that describes the fundamental interactions and matter of the subnuclear world. Group members have played a major role in exploring neutrino physics, dark matter and dark energy. Research areas of the Standard Model have included B physics, CP violation and Higgs physics, as well as frontiers beyond the standard model such as supersymmetry, extra dimensions and string theory. These are exciting times as we eagerly await the Large Hadron Collider experiment at CERN which will provide the answers to some of the most fundamental questions regarding the quantum Universe.
