It will soon be 20 years since the Ogden Centre for Fundamental Physics at Durham University was opened. To celebrate our 20th birthday we are hosting a symposium on 'Five key questions about the Universe.' Professor Jim Peebles, 2019 Nobel Prize in Physics winner, will be giving the opening keynote speech. We hope that you will join us for this exciting event.

Order of speakers and their topics: 

  1. What is the dark matter, how much is there and where is it? Professor Carlos Frenk, Institute for Computational Cosmology
  2. Neutrinos and their connection to the matter-antimatter asymmetry. Dr Jessica Turner, Institute for Particle Physics Phenomenology
  3. What is the dark energy, when and where was it generated? Dr Sownak Bose, Institute for Computational Cosmology
  4. Was Einstein right? Black hole archaeology with gravitational waves. Dr Djuna Croon, Institute for Particle Physics Phenomenology
  5. The Origins of planets and the environments for life : Dr Jacob Kegerreis, Postdoctoral researcher recently moved to NASA Ames from the Institute for Computational Cosmology.
