Dr Tim Gershon
Flavour physics and CP violation; neutrino and heavy quark physics. I work in testing the model of CP violation effects that won Kobayashi and Maskawa the 2008 Nobel Prize in Physics
Specifically, I am active in the study of B mesons, at the B factory experiments: (2001-2005) Belle at KEK, (2005-present) BaBar at SLAC (Warwick page), and (2008-foreseeable future) LHCb at CERN (Warwick page). Postgraduate research opportunities on LHCb are available (look under "B physics"). Particular interests are tests of the Standard Model and searches for new physics with measurements at these experiments, and also at future facilities. I am a member of HFAG, with responsibility for averaging measurements related to the angles of the Unitarity Triangle.
I am a member of STFC's Particle Physics Advisory Committee.
