Are you a prospective graduate student wanting to push back the barriers to our understanding of the universe at its most fundamental level? The University of Toronto is a great place to do research in experimental particle physics.

"Billions of neutrinos from the sun pass through you every second and you don't even notice, fortunately!... Nevertheless in our laboratories we manage to make and study neutrinos, the most elusive and least understood of the known fundamental particles in our universe."

Please contact me or any member of our Experimental Particle Physics and Astrophysics group.
