This is the web page of our theory group working on fundamental physics at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
We are a group of faculty members whose research spans a continuum from the nuclear/particle border through Standard Model physics and new phenomena beyond the Standard Model into theoretical cosmology and classical and quantum gravitational physics. We enjoy this breadth because it means that a wide range of interesting physics is being discussed locally. Our students tend to work collaboratively with more than one faculty member over the course of their studies, and this helps to provide a broader education.
Faculty members working on Fundamental Interactions Theory include:

The theory group is part of the Amherst Center for Fundamental Interactions. Please visit the ACFI webpage to learn more about our activities. That page is hopefully being kept more up to date than this one, and visitors should go there for recent information.
We run a weekly seminar, most often on Tuesdays at 2:30 but sometimes on Friday at 2:00 in LGRT 1033 lecture side. These are run jointly with our experimental colleagues. The listings for these are maintained on the Departmental seminar page.
