Academic Focus

Theoretical Particle Physics

Sheakha Aldaihan received her B.S. and Ph.D. degrees in physics from Indiana University. Her research is focused on fundamental problems in physics that are experimentally accessible. While for the past 50 years, collider physics and large-scale projects have been driving the successes of the Standard Model, there are several opportunities to explore fundamental problems using small tabletop experiments incorporating low-energy precision techniques. A large body of laboratory experiments, in addition to cosmic and astrophysical observations, is invested in such search, however, the sensitivity of many of the experiments is still weak and large areas for possible signals remain unexplored. Dr. Aldaihan's research is seeking to pervade new areas by combing theoretical ideas with current experimental tests.
