Members of the Carleton University particle theory group are committed to promoting an environment of accessibility, equity, diversity, and inclusion in our group. We recognize and celebrate the diversity and lived experiences of the students, postdocs, faculty, and staff. Our full statement on inclusion, diversity, equity, and accesibility can be found here.

The Carleton Theoretical Particle Physics group is the largest phenomenology group in Canada, focusing on the connection between particle theory and experiments.  The group is composed of seven faculty members, five research associates, five PhD students, and one MSc student.  We study models of new physics and how they might be detected by experiments.  If unexpected experimental results are found, we aim to disentangle the underlying theory.  Most recently, members of the group have worked on Higgs physics and physics beyond the Standard Model as can be studied at the LHC and the future colliders.  In addition, we study a broad range of topics in particle physics ranging from hadronic physics to dark matter.
