RASC Mississauga: Antimatter: From the Subatomic to the Cosmological Scales

Dr. Wendy Taylor, Department of Physics and Astronomy, York University
Friday, May 27, 2016 -
8:00pm to 10:00pm

Dr. Wendy Taylor talks about the science of antimatter. What is it? How is it made, trapped, studied and used? And what can it tell us about how the universe works?

Wendy J. Taylor is Associate Professor of Physics at York University and Canada Research Chair in Experimental Particle Physics. She is a member of the university‚Äôs High Energy Physics Group as well as its ATLAS group.  ATLAS is a key experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. Her research at the Fermilab particle collider showing differences in the production of matter and anti-matter in high-energy collisions is shedding light on the imbalance in matter and anti-matter in the early universe. Professor Taylor is a member of the American Physical Society and the Canadian Institute of Particle Physics.
