High Energy, Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics


Experimental Particle Physics


The Udine/ICTP ATLAS group, supported by the INFN, is part of the ATLAS experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The group has made and continues to make measurements and observations of the two heaviest known elementary particles: the top quark and the Higgs boson as well as conducting searches for new physics and particles. The team is also strongly involved in science outreach and public engagement. Additionally, it participates in the development of detectors for the LHC upgrades, as well as Monte Carlo simulation/validation and computing performance. ICTP joined forces with the University of Udine ATLAS group in 2008.

Bobby Acharya has research interests in Physics with the ATLAS experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider, High energy particle physics and cosmology, The phenomenological consequences of string/M theory.
