Professor Thomas Teubner, Dipl. Phys., Dr. rer. nat.
Thomas completed his PhD (Dr. rer. nat.) in Theoretical Physics in 1995 at the University of Karlsruhe (Germany). Following this he held postdoctoral positions at Durham, DESY (Hamburg, Germany) and RWTH Aachen (Germany), before being appointed as a CERN Theory Fellow. In 2003 Thomas joined the University of Liverpool and was awarded a PPARC (now STFC) Advanced Fellowship hosted by Liverpool in 2005. In 2010 he was appointed Senior Lecturer in the Department of Mathematical Sciences and promoted to Reader in 2014 and to Professor in 2019.
Thomas's research is in Particle Physics. He is working in leading roles in several international working groups at the interface between theoretical and experimental particle physics. In 2013 he joined, together with colleagues from the Department of Physics, the g-2 Collaboration as a full member. Since then a new experiment has been built at Fermilab (US), with major contributions from Liverpool. Data taking is currently ongoing, to measure the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon, to test the Standard Model of Particle Physics with unprecedented accuracy and to possibly establish new physics beyond it.
At the University, Thomas has served in various teaching and admin roles, including being programme director for the undergraduate degree programmes in Theoretical Physics. He is currently PI of the group's STFC Consolidated Grant and Head of Research for the Department of Mathematical Sciences. Thomas has been a member of the University's Board of Discipline for two full terms. He was elected to Senate in 2019 and to Council in 2020.
