  • About

    Professor Wells is a theoretical physicist whose research explores ideas designed to solve outstanding "origins" problems in fundamental physics: the origin of gauge symmetries, dark matter, flavor violations, CP violation, and especially mass. He is particularly interested in pursuing these ideas within the context of supersymmetry, extra dimensions, and new Higgs boson interactions.

    Professor Wells is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, a recipient of an Outstanding Junior Investigator (OJI) Award from the U.S. Department of Energy, and a Sloan Fellowship from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
