Our research addresses physical climate processes in the context of anthropogenic perturbations to the Earth system as the underlying cause of climate change with an overall focus on the role of clouds and aerosols.
Computational Condensed Matter Physics Group
We use and develop upon first principles computational modeling methods such as density functional theory and many-body perturbation theory to understand and predict structural, vibrational, electronic, optical and transport properties of materials.
Condensed Matter Theory
Theory of complex quantum and classical systems
Dipolar Quantum Gases group
We are currently building an ultracold erbium experiment in our lab in the Beecroft building with the aim of studying the effect of long-range interactions on quantum fluids.
Earth Observation Data Group
The principal focus of EODG is the retrieval of atmospheric properties (e.g. temperature, pressure, trace gas concentrations, aerosol and cloud properties) from data gathered by Earth Observing satellites.
Electronic structures and photoemission spectroscopy
Our research focuses on understanding the behavior of electrons in unconventional materials. We also develop advanced instrumentation that will drive the exploration of critical information on condensed matter systems with new degrees of freedom.
ePIC is the Electron Proton/Ion Collider experiment seeking to understand the inner structure of the proton and the force that binds quarks and gluons.
The European Space Agency's (ESA) Euclid flagship Dark Energy Satellite Mission launched from Cape Canaveral on 1 July 2023; Oxford's Department of Physics plays a key role in the lensing data analysis and has been involved since its inception.
