ABOUT THE LECTURE:
Searching for Dark Matter
Our speaker writes: This talk will concentrate on searches for dark matter particles at the LHC at CERN in Geneva and at the LUX-ZEPLIN dark matter experiment in South Dakota, USA. The talk that I might give on this subject will be focused more on the identity of dark matter, and how we go about seeking it, rather than the underlying astrophysics and cosmology.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
Prof. Dan Tovey
Prof. Dan Tovey is a professor of particle physics at the University of Sheffield in the UK. In terms of ATLAS physics analysis he is interested in searches for new physics predicted by supersymmetry (SUSY) theory, and in methods for measuring the properties of particles decaying to dark matter or neutrinos. He is also interested in new ideas for reconstructing ATLAS data using particle flow techniques. At various points he has been convener of the ATLAS SUSY working group, Principle Investigator for ATLAS-UK, and ATLAS Physics Coordinator.
