Chamkaur Ghag

Professor Chamkaur Ghag is an astroparticle physicist leading the research at University College London (UCL) to experimentally detect dark matter in our galaxy. He is the international Spokesperson of the LZ Dark Matter Experiment, operating the world’s most sensitive dark matter detector in the Black Hills of South Dakota, and also works with novel quantum sensors for rare or exotic particle physics searches in the laboratory at UCL. Prior to joining UCL in 2012 and initiating the dark matter group he was a research associate at the University of California Los Angeles and the University of Edinburgh, where he completed his PhD in 2006. Chamkaur serves on several scientific advisory panels, including the Boulby Underground Science Facility, UK, where he operates cutting-edge low-background radio-assay facilities to enable rare-event searches. Chamkaur teaches the Climate & Energy physics course at UCL and collaborates widely outside fundamental physics within the arts, neuroscience and Earth sciences, deploying particle physics data analysis techniques to climate change related research and solutions.
