An elementary discussion of what interests me: What is the Universe Made Of? These are Slides from the introductory lecture in my third year undergraduate course PHY357

My research is part of a wide collaborative experimental effort to understand what lies beyond our present ideas on the most fundamental structure of matter. In the twenty years from 1975, the interplay between experiment (see for example my first two "Selected Publications") and theory, has led to a synthesis known as the standard model; it encompasses all presently known phenomena in particle physics. It also points to the existence of new phenomena which should be accessible to the generation of experiments now under construction.

My own work is part of the ATLAS collaboration. ATLAS is a large general purpose detector which operates at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. At Toronto during the period 1995 to 2006, I worked on the construction of an innovative particle detector which is instrumental in the search for at least two of the new phenomena mentioned above; Supersymmetry, and the origin of electroweak symmetry breaking ( the mechanism which generates the masses of particles). This detector is the outcome of a long term at programme at Toronto aimed at developing very radiation hard particle detectors. Only such detectors can function close to the high intensity LHC beams.

Research projects I have previously been involved in: ZEUS, ARGUS, CHARM, Split Field Magnet, HPWF , OMEGA , 1.5 meter Bubbble Chamber .

Apart from Physics, I'm interested in: Accelerators , Japanese , Animals , Railways , Jeeps , and Mountains .
