Dr Susan Haines

Research Associate, High Energy Physics Group, Cavendish Laboratory and Deputy Undergraduate Admissions Tutor

Susan is an experimental particle physicist. As an undergraduate, she read Natural Sciences (experimental and theoretical physics) at Cambridge; this was followed by a PhD in the High Energy Physics Group at the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge. Subsequently, she was the Beatrice Mary Dale Research Fellow at Newnham College, Cambridge.  She is a member of the LHCb experimental collaboration, carrying out her research with data provided by the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in Geneva. Her research concerns the precision measurement of certain aspects of a phenomenon called CP violation. CP violation is important in explaining the differences in behaviour between matter and antimatter, and therefore the dominance of matter over antimatter in the Universe we observe today. and the "Experimental high energy (particle) physics, with particular interest in B physics and CP violation" summary.
