Theory & Phenomenology

Within the UCL high energy physics group, the theory & phenomenology research programme focusses on the following areas:

Standard Model Physics

Probe QCD in the new environment of high multiplicity, large boosts and multiple interactions that the LHC provides and utilise the advances made to benefit our electroweak symmetry breaking programme and the development of improved models of proton structure and QCD interactions. More information on this part of our research can be found on our Standard Model Theory page.

Beyond the Standard Model Physics

Use the information provided by current particle physics experiments to constrain and pinpoint new physics scenarios beyond the Standard Model, and to guide future experimental efforts to optimally explore the new physics frontier. As part of this programme, we put a focus on neutrino and lepton flavour physics. More information on this part of our research can be found on our Beyond the SM Theory page.
