Terence Richard Wyatt (born 29 June 1957)[1] FRS[4] is a Professor in the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Manchester, UK.[5][6][7]

Education[edit]

Wyatt was educated at Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School, Tamworth, Imperial College London (Bachelor of Science) and St Edmund Hall, Oxford where he was awarded a DPhil degree in 1983 for research supervised by Robin Devenish.[1][2]

Career and Research[edit]

Wyatt's conducts research in particle physics primarily on the DØ experiment at the Tevatron proton-antiproton collider in Fermilab and on the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider proton-proton collider in CERN.[8][9][10] [11][12][13][14] He was one of three short-listed candidates for the position of CERN Director General in 2014, with Fabiola Gianotti and Frank Linde.[15]

Awards and honours[edit]

Wyatt was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society (FRS) in 2013.[4] His certificate of election reads:

Wyatt was also awarded the James Chadwick Medal and Prize from the Institute of Physics in 2011.[3]
