Dan Tovey

Dan is a professor of particle physics at the University of Sheffield in the UK. In terms of ATLAS physics analysis he is interested in searches for new physics predicted by supersymmetry (SUSY) theory, and in methods for measuring the properties of particles decaying to dark matter or neutrinos. He is also interested in new ideas for reconstructing ATLAS data using particle flow techniques. At various points he has been convener of the ATLAS SUSY working group, Principle Investigator for ATLAS-UK, and ATLAS Physics Coordinator.

Searching for Dark Matter with the ATLAS detector

When we look around us, at all the things we can touch and see all of this is visible matter. And yet, this makes up less than 5% of the universe.

ATLAS highlights from Moriond 2017

At this year’s Rencontres de Moriond, the ATLAS collaboration presented the first results examining the combined 2015/2016 LHC data at 13 TeV proton–proton collision energy. Thanks to outstanding performance of the CERN accelerator complex last year, this new dataset is almost three times larger than that available at ICHEP, the last major particle physics conference held in August 2016.
