HMC Expert: Brian Shuve

Dark Matter, Physics, Theoretical Particle Physics

Brian Shuve, PhD, researches theoretical particle physics. Shuve develops and studies new theories to explain mysteries of the universe, such as the nature of dark matter and why there exists more matter than antimatter. He also devises and implements new experimental tests to learn more about the fundamental constituents and forces of matter. For example, Shuve researches how the discovery of new particles at high-energy colliders such as CERN’s Large Hadron Collider could shed light on the physical processes taking place in the early universe that shape the world as we see it today.

Prior to joining Harvey Mudd, Shuve conducted research at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory at Stanford University and was a postdoctoral researcher and lecturer at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, Canada. Shuve attained a bachelor’s degree in engineering science from the University of Toronto and a PhD in theoretical particle physics from Harvard University.
