Event description

Description

This public and accessible talk will first overview our understanding of the fundamental essence of the universe and the methods we have employed to get to this point.

Focussing on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), a monumental scientific endeavour currently in operation at CERN in Switzerland, we will explore the prospects for revealing some of the deepest mysteries of Nature and tackle some of the tough questions about this quest to understand our universe.

Speaker: Professor Mark Kruse graduated with an MSc in Physics from The University of Auckland in 1988 before embarking on his PhD in Physics in the United States. Kruse is now a Professor of Physics at Duke University in the USA, where he is a renowned scientist and leader in the field of high-energy particle physics.
He conducts his research on the ATLAS experiment at the LHC, and was part of the team that discovered the Higgs boson in 2012.
