Prateek Agrawal

Associate Professor

I am interested in understanding the fundamental laws of nature and ways we can test them. My research revolves around open questions in fundamental physics, such as the nature of dark matter and dark energy, and explanations for the patterns in the basic building blocks of particle physics.

I grew up in India, and obtained my bachelor’s degree in Engineering Physics from IIT Bombay. I moved to the University of Maryland for my PhD in particle physics. I was a postdoctoral researcher at Fermilab and at Harvard before moving to Oxford.
