Welcome! We are a group of faculty members exploring the fundamental building blocks of nature and their interactions through direct experimentation at a variety of particle beams, colliders, and detectors around the world. Our work combines the abstraction of the mathematical and the invisible with the concrete and practical: apparatus design, construction, electronics, software development, and data analysis.
