Accepting PhD Students

Personal profile


Will is a particle physicist, working at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), seeking to understand the fundamental mysteries of the universe. He is a member of the LHCb collaboration who operate the LHCb detector, one of four main experiments at the LHC. Will leads teams within LHCb who study the weak force (which is responsible for radioactivity), the internal structure of the proton, and the differences between matter and anti-matter. He is now launching a new research programme scrutinising rare decays of B-hadrons involving tau-leptons. By carefully investigating these processes, Will will search for the influence of previously undiscovered fundamental particles, allowing us to gain a deeper understanding of nature.
