Alan J Barr is a lecturer of the Particle Physics group in the University of Oxford’s department of physics, a Tutorial Fellow in physics at Merton College, the Physics coordinator of the ATLAS UK collaboration and currently works with the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) on the Swiss-French boarder near Geneva.
Brian Cox as a Royal Society University Research Fellow based in the Particle Physics group at the University of Manchester, where he holds a chair in Particle Physics. He is also working on the ATLAS experiment at CERN in Geneva. Professor Cox’ main research interest lies with the FP420 R&D project aimed at upgrading ATLAS and CMS with forward proton detectors 420m away from the interaction points. In the past, he has also worked at the H1 experiment at DESY in Hamburg, and the D0 experiment at the Tevatron at Fermilab, Chicago.
Dr. John March-Russel is a theoretical particle physicist working primarily on Beyond-the-Standard-Model (BSM) physics, with a strong interest in the related fields of astro-particle physics, string phenomenology, and some aspects of strong-coupling physics in the standard model. BSM physics involves the development of new theories to describe the most fundamental aspects of the world around us. These include the nature of space and time, the origin and behaviour of the forces and matter we observe, the very early universe (first few seconds) and its origin, and the properties of black holes.
Science Oxford welcomes top physicists Dr. Alan J. Barr, Brian Cox and Dr. John March-Russell as they bring us the first news from the Large Hadron Collider: an 17 mile long atom-smasher deep below the Alps which will recreate the conditions that existed in the first moments after the Big Bang.
