Cornell Theoretical Particle Physics Group
Cornell Particle Theory group consists of 12 faculty members
(7 active, 3 emeritus, and 2 adjunct), 4 postdocs
13 graduate students
We pursue research on string theory, string cosmology, physics beyond the standard model, collider physics,
flavor physics, lattice gauge theory, particle astrophysics, and applications of quantum field theory to condensed
matter systems. Our research is made possible by generous support of the National Science Foundation
Seminars and Events
Theory seminar is held weekly on Wednesdays at 2:00 pm.
Journal club (more informal talks, typically by group members) is held on Fridays at 12:30 pm.
(Occasionally, external speakers are scheduled to talk on Fridays as well.) All meetings are in PSB 401, unless explicitly specified otherwise.
Seminar organizers are Paul McGuirk
and Javi Serra
