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.

Together with our theory colleagues, we form the Amherst Center for Fundamental Interactions. The ACFI holds a weekly seminar, typically on Tuesdays at 2:30 but sometimes on Friday at 2:00 in LGRT 419B.  Seminar listings are maintained on the Departmental seminar page.
