Toback, David Professor

Positions

My area of specialization is Experimental Particle Physics and has focused on the search for new fundamental particles. This includes searches at the world's highest energy particle accelerators, with the CDF Experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron (outside Chicago, IL) and the CMS Experiment at the Large Hadron Collider, or LHC (in Geneva, Switzerland), as well as deep underground with the CDMS experiment (currently in Minnesota and moving to Sudbury, Ontario Canada) to search for Dark Matter. The search for new particles is motivated in part by the tantalizing possibility of understanding the mysteries of particle physics, the earliest moments in the Universe after the Big Bang, and the existence of the Dark Matter that pervades the Universe today with a single discovery.
