The research group works in 2 areas: theory and experiment; theory research concerns fundamental physics at all energy scales, from hadronic binding energy to the massive forces at play in the 1st instants of the universe�s existence; our current research explores developments in both perturbative and non-perturbative field theory, renormalization theory and the application of quantum theory to other branches of physics, such as turbulence theory and condensed matter systems; with experiment, we look to understand the fundamental particles of nature and the interactions that govern their behaviour; in particular, from understanding the symmetries present in the universe, we seek to explain the dominance of matter over anti-matter, and mechanisms of symmetry-breaking that led to the creation of mass via the Higgs boson and non-Standard Model particles.
