Peter Millington

Senior Research Fellow and UKRI Future Leaders Fellow in the Particle Theory Group, Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Manchester

I am a theoretical physicist in the Particle Theory Group in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at The University of Manchester. My research focusses on the fundamental structure of nature, how it is built from the elementary particles and what this means for the behaviour and evolution of our universe.

Fundamental particles, gravity and Einstein's theories, the nature of space and time, the structure of the Universe; all including recent results from experiments/observations and new theoretical developments.
