The Stirling lecture is an annual public lecture organized by IPPP in honour of its first Director, Professor James Stirling CBE FRS.
This year’s lecture will be given by John Ellis and is entitled "Beyond the Higgs Boson" and it will take place on Tuesday 3rd December at 16:30 in the Scarborough Lecture Theatre.
"The discovery of the Higgs Boson at the LHC marks the start of a new era in fundamental physics, opening new vistas in astrophysics and cosmology as well as particle physics."
John Ellis CBE FRS is a renowned theoretical physicist with research interests in particle physics, astrophysics, cosmology and quantum gravity.His work provided an inspiration for the discovery of the gluon at DESY in 1979. Subsequently he has pioneered phenomenological studies of the Higgs boson, supersymmetry and dark matter, string models and quantum gravity.
John Ellis a member of CERN and Adviser to the CERN Director General for relations with
non-member states, he is the Clerk Maxwell Professor of Theoretical Physics at King’s College London. John is a Visiting Professor at IPPP, Durham University, and also at Imperial and UCL. He is a recipient of the Dirac Medal and Prize by the Institute of Physics.
