    EVENT TIME 19:20-20:40

    VENUE West Terrace Classroom


    High-energy particle collisions are one of the main experimental tools for studying particle physics. What fundamental physical questions need to be addressed by this method? What products emerge from collisions and how can they be detected? This lecture will provide a brief introduction to the basic principles of particle physics research and the major international large-scale collision experiments in operation, as well as the future planning and development of large-scale particle physics experiments.

    Brief introduction to the speaker

    Yiming Li, a distinguished young researcher at the Institute of High Energy Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, received her Bachelor’s degree in Physics from Tsinghua University in 2007 and her Ph.D. from Oxford University in 2011. She also worked as a postdoctoral researcher at Tsinghua University and French Linear Accelerator Laboratory, and has been working at the Institute of High Energy Physics since 2017. Her research interests are heavy-flavor physics at the LHCb and the development of silicon detectors on future collider experiments.
