Theoretical High Energy Particle Physics Group

We are a large research group, primarily in DAMTP. We have some members in common both with the Relativity and Gravitation group and with the Cavendish HEP Theory Group, reflecting strong research links. Prof. Nick Dorey is head of the group and Ms Amanda Stagg, as HEP group secretary, is the first point of contact.
