Particle Physics Group





Beyond the Standard Model

We have expertise in physics beyond the Standard Model. Recent projects have involved studies of gauge theories in extra dimensions, non-standard Higgs physics and the CP violating minimal supersymmetric Standard Model.


Our group has a long tradition in studies of the strong interactions. We have particular expertise in all aspects of perturbative QCD processes at colliders (from the study of power corrections to the development of the HERWIG Monte Carlo program). We are also particularly interested in particle scattering at very high energies (the so-called diffractive limit) and the nature of the pomeron. Recently we have been studying the possibility of producing new "Beyond the Standard Model" phenomena using diffractive processes.

Early Universe

We have expertise in Particle Physics aspects of the Early Universe, such as Neutrino Physics, Dark Matter and Baryogenesis. Recent projects include the study of Baryogenesis through Resonant Leptogenesis and its potential consequences on low-energy experiments and future colliders. We are particularly interested in the overlap with astroparticle physics (see also the Theoretical Astrophysics & Cosmology Group at Manchester's Jodrell Bank Observatory).
