Theoretical High Energy Particle Physics Group

The Cambridge HEP theory group is a large research group, primarily in DAMTP. We have some members in common with the Relativity and Gravitation group and with the Cavendish HEP Theory Group, reflecting strong research links. Prof. Sean Hartnoll is head of the group and Ms Amanda Stagg, as HEP group administrator, is the first point of contact.
