Fellow in Physics; Director of Studies
Natural Sciences (Physical)
Dr Sarah Williams’ interest in particle physics was sparked as an undergraduate when, while studying Natural Sciences at Cambridge, she was awarded a summer studentship at CERN.
She then completed a PhD in the Cambridge High Energy Physics group where she worked on searches for electroweak supersymmetry using the LHC run-I dataset. After her PhD she moved to the Netherlands where she worked as a physics lecturer at Maastricht University, before returning to Cambridge in September 2016 to take up a Fellowship in Physics at Murray Edwards College.
As a member of the ATLAS collaboration at CERN, Dr Sarah Williams’ research focuses on searches for new physics beyond the standard model, including supersymmetry and extra dimensional models.
