Peter W. Graham
Associate Professor of Physics, Stanford University; Physics and Sensing Focus Area Lead Team Member, SQMS
Areas of expertise: HEP Physics, Quantum Sensing
Peter Graham is interested in discovering the most fundamental laws of nature. This includes proposing new theories to explain mysteries such as the nature of dark matter and the hierarch problem. In particular, he is interested in inventing novel experiments to discover such new physics, frequently using techniques from condensed matter, atomic physics and astrophysics. Peter has proposed and helped initiate new experiments searching for gravitational waves and dark matter, including axion and hidden photon dark matter. To make progress, he and his team frequently use the highest-precision quantum sensing technology available and adapt it to their fundamental physics goals.
