Dr Melissa Uchida is a particle physicist work at Imperial College London.

Whilst we know that 68% of the uni­verse is dark energy and 27% is dark mat­ter, we have only hints as to their nature. The mat­ter dom­in­ated uni­verse of which we are a part makes up the remain­ing 5% but even here there are many out­stand­ing ques­tions, such as how does it come to exist in the first place?

To under­stand these ques­tions particle phys­i­cists work as a global com­munity, invent­ing new tech­no­lo­gies with bene­fits that reach far bey­ond the pur­suit of knowledge. This talk gives a brief his­tory of particle phys­ics and describes one physicist's work in the hunt for answers.

Parking is available on site.
