TITLE: Smashing Physics
I’ll discuss how we do physics at the ‘energy frontier’ and what we have learned from it – including the discovery of the Higgs boson and what that means. I’ll also look at what we still don’t understand, and what the next steps might be.
Speaker: Jonathan Butterworth

I’m originally from Manchester, and have previously worked at Oxford, Penn State and Hamburg.
