Ben Allanach

I'm a Professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Cambridge, in the Theoretical High Energy Particle Physics Group. I'm also a Quantum Selves (life drawing) artist. To find out the kind of research I've been involved in, watch my TEDx talk (movie). My focus has moved on a little to the B-anomalies and quantum field theoretic anomalies since that video was filmed.

These days, I work mostly on collider searches for new physics with other members of the Cambridge Pheno Working Group, especially at CERN's Large Hadron Collider. I worked at CERN in the early 2000s and go back often, having Visiting Scientist status there.
