Research Abstract
Professor Tait's research focuses on the smallest scales, seeking for physics beyond the Standard Model that describes all known fundamental particles. One particular direction he pursues is to understand the nature of the mysterious dark matter whose existence can be inferred from observation of the Universe, but whose fundamental nature remains unknown.
