Upcoming SSE Public Lectures

Particle Physics and Cosmology : The Final Frontiers

Speaker: Dr. Sarah Malik
Time: 6:30pm – 7:30pm
Venue: Tariq Rafi Lecture Theater

About the talk: Particle Physics and cosmology have revolutionized humankind's understanding of the Universe and our place in it. This talk will take you through the engineering marvel that is the world's most powerful particle collider, the Large Hadron Collider and its quest to understand the fundamental building blocks of the Universe and answer the most puzzling questions in physics, such as; What is the nature of dark matter? Where did all the antimatter go? Are there extra spatial dimensions?

About the Speaker: Dr. Sarah Malik is a Royal Society Research Fellow at Imperial College London. She studied Physics as an undergraduate at Oxford University where she also served as President of the Oxford University Pakistan Society. She obtained her PhD in particle physics from University College London in 2009 where she performed the world’s most precise measurement of the mass of a key elementary particle. She was awarded the highly prestigious Royal Society Research fellowship in 2015 and is the 2016 recipient of the Institute of Physics HEPP prize for her pioneering role in searching for dark matter at particle colliders.
