Dr. Jacinda Ginges

AI Ginges will bring expertise in precision tests of fundamental physics. AI Ginges’ areas of speciality include high-precision studies of symmetries violations (parity, time-reversal) in heavy atoms. Atomic parity violation studies provide some of the tightest constraints on possible new physics beyond the standard model, complementing searches performed at the LHC. Studies of parity and time-reversal violating atomic electric dipole moments tightly constrain possible new sources of CP-violation appearing in theories beyond the standard model. AI Ginges’ work focuses on the development of high-precision atomic many-body methods and she provides other theory support towards tests of fundamental physics using heavy atoms.
