Professor Nigel Glover FRS

Professor of Physics, Physics Department, Durham University

Nigel Glover has made pivotal research contributions to the understanding of data collected at all high-energy particle physics colliders. His theoretical studies of weak boson, Higgs, and particularly jet production are used world-wide. He is especially distinguished for his contributions to the development and exploitation of the perturbative structure of Quantum Chromodynamics, which is vital for precision measurements at the LHC. Glover's numerous technical innovations include the use of helicities for QCD loop amplitudes, the elucidation of the infrared structure of one and two-loop processes, and pioneering work on the second-order perturbative corrections to scattering cross sections.
