Admissions Tutor; Official Fellow
MA, MSci, PhD
Susan is a particle physicist and a member of the LHCb experimental collaboration, carrying out her research with data provided by the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. Her research concerns the precision measurement of certain aspects of a phenomenon called CP violation. This is important in explaining the differences in behaviour between matter and antimatter, and therefore the dominance of matter over antimatter we observe in the Universe today.
As an undergraduate, Susan read Natural Sciences (Physics) at Cambridge; this was followed by a PhD in the High Energy Physics Group at the Cavendish Laboratory. Subsequently, she was the Beatrice Mary Dale Research Fellow at Newnham College, and then a Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellow. She joined Murray Edwards as Admissions Tutor in 2019, after holding the same position at St Edmund’s College.
The highly collaborative nature of the field of particle physics means that Susan is an author of over 450 journal papers published using data from the LHCb experiment. Details can be found here.
