Exploring the Limits of the Standard Model and Beyond (Cons Grant)


Lead researcher

Emeritus Professor Christopher Sachrajda FRS, FInstP, CPhys, PhD

Research interests

  • Developing Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), the quantum field theory of the strong-nuclear force and implementing it studies of particle physics phenomenology. 
Other researchers

Professor Pasquale Di Bari

Professor of Physics And Astronomy

Research interests

  • Particle Cosmology and Neutrino Physics:
  • BSM physics, grand-unified models, flavour models
  • Seesaw models and phenomenology

Professor Alexander Belyaev

Professor of Physics

Professor Nicholas Evans

Professor of Particle Physics

Research interests

  • Strongly Coupled Gauge Theories including QCD and composite Higgs models
  • Holographic Descriptions of Gauge Theories
  • The origin of mass

Emeritus Professor Doug Ross FRS

Research interests

  • Perturbative QCD
  • Pomerons and low-x Physics
  • Physics beyond the Standard Model

Professor Elena Accomando


Research interests

  • Theory and Phenomenology of Particle Physics at colliders, within the Standard Model and beyond.

Emeritus Professor Stephen King FInstP, CPhys, PhD

Research interests

  • The Flavour Problem and Neutrino Physics
  • Interface of Cosmology with Particle Physics
  • Beyond the Standard Model

Professor Tim Morris LRAM FHEA FInstP

Professor of Physics & Astronomy

Professor Stefano Moretti PhD, FilDrHC


Research interests

  • His research interests include: Standard Model (QCD and EW Interactions), Supersymmetry, Non-minimal Higgs Models, Higher Order Corrections and Monte Carlo Event Generators.
  • Prof Moretti’s scientific activity is in particle phenomenology, particularly in the area of collider physics. His contribution to particle physics is substantial as seen from more than 500 scientific papers/articles that he has published. (Please ignore the metrics provided by PlumX or else on these pages as they are completely wrong for my field of specialisation, always refer to iNSPIRE ones.)
  • Prof Moretti is also author of two textbooks, S. Khalil and S. Moretti, `Supersymmetry Beyond Minimality: from Theory to Experiment' and 'SM Phenomenology', both with CRC Press, Taylor & Francis Group.
