In high energy physics we seek to understand the nature of space and time, the characteristics of the forces governing the
interactions of matter and energy, and the origins of the properties of the elementary particles. Modern theories of particle physics purport
to explain the origin of mass, and hope to unify the descriptions of all the forces, including gravity. Our research group works on projects
that test these ideas.
With the discovery that "normal" matter constitutes only 4% of the total energy in the universe, the study of dark matter and dark energy has atracted great interest. We collaborate on tow projects that plan to study these phenomena.
