Ben Gripaios is Professor of Theoretical Physics in the Cavendish High Energy Theory Group. He received his D. Phil. from Oxford University in 2004 and previously held post-doctoral positions at the European Laboratory for Particle Physics (CERN), the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPF Lausanne), and Oxford University. He is also a Fellow of King's College, Cambridge.

Curriculum Vitae


My research focuses on the search for new physics at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiment at CERN in Geneva. Much of my work is done in tandem with experimental particle physicists, devising methods to discover and measure the properties of any physics beyond the so-called `Standard Model'. I also work on building mathematical models to describe new physics, using data from the LHC and other particle physics experiments, as well as data from astrophysical observations.
