Distinguished Professor Of Physics

Vivek HeadshotI am a Professor of Physics at the University of California at San Diego. My research is in the field of Particle Physics (Experiment).

By smashing ultra-energetic protons and examining the resulting sub-atomic debris I attempt to understand the fundamental constituents of this universe.


I am currently involved in the search for the Higgs boson at the Large Hadron Collider near Geneva, Switzerland.


At UCSD I teach Physics, particularly Quantum Mechanics, Relativity and Elementary Particle Physics.
