Assistant Professor of Physics
PHONE: (617) 253-4816
ASSISTANT: Joanne Gregory (617) 253-7062
Area of Physics:
Professor Williams is using data from the LHCb experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN to search for new force-carrying particles that could mediate interactions between dark matter particles, and to study the charm quark, strange quark, and gluon content of the proton. He is also leading the design of a unique cutting-edge detector system for identifying charged particles to be used at the GlueX experiment at Jefferson Lab. Mike 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.
Mike Williams joined the MIT Physics Department as an Assistant Professor in July 2012. He grew up in the suburbs of Pittsburgh, received his undergraduate degree in Mathematics and Physics from Saint Vincent College in 2001 and his Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University in 2007. He was a postdoctoral researcher at Imperial College London from 2008-2012.
