Dr Herschel Aditya Chawdhry
Fellow, Junior Research Fellow
Department of Physics
PhD, MA, MSc, BA (Cantab)
Dr Herschel Chawdhry is a particle physicist at the University of Oxford. He explores the smallest and most fundamental particles that constitute our world. He specialises in performing high-precision calculations to predict the outcome of collisions at particle colliders, such as the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Much of his research focuses on Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), the theory that explains the strong forces between the quarks and gluons found inside protons and neutrons. Highlights from his research include the first next-to-next-to-leading-order QCD calculation for a 2-to-3 process.
Dr Chawdhry grew up in northern Italy and obtained his BA, MSci, and PhD degrees from Trinity College (University of Cambridge). He joined Kellogg College as a Junior Research Fellow in 2021.
