Research Summary

Professor Williams is using data from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN to study differences in the behavior of matter and antimatter. These studies could lead to the discovery of physics beyond the standard model and possibly to an explanation of the origins of the matter-antimatter asymmetry we observe in the universe today. He is also working on a project that will study the structure of strongly interacting systems at Jefferson Lab. Of particular interest is probing the role that gluons play in such systems. Williams has a strong interest in applying machine learning techniques to physics analyses and also in using/developing advanced statistical methods to further his research goals.
