BANGKOK FUNDAMENTAL PHYSICS GROUP
The activities of our group are mostly concentrated on the theory of fundamental
interactions and its applications to early cosmology. This brings us, at times,
in contact with a wide range of other branches of theoretical and mathematical

We organize theoretical physics workshops that run every January-February:
Bangkok Workshops on High-Energy Theory:
Bangkok Workshops on Discrete Geometry, Dynamics and Statistics:
NEW!!! Bangkok Workshop on Gravity and Cosmology 2024
There are occasional group seminars according to availability of
local and visiting speakers. The seminars are announced through
the Thai Theoretical Physics Mailing List.
Once in a while, international schools are organized. The most recent one is here.
There are occasional postdoc-level openings for young researchers.
We're interested in directing Ph.D. students in various
areas of theoretical and mathematical high-energy physics. Prospective
students are requested to contact the group members. We expect the students
to be prepared for conducting high quality research at the time of enrollment.
Students from Thailand and neighboring countries are especially
welcome, but we're open to discussing Ph.D. recruitment with any qualified
candidates worldwide. Funding for Ph.D. studies may be available from university sources.
We run a senior academic visitor program supporting established researchers
to join our group, normally for a period of 1 month.
Former visitors include Sergey KETOV (Tokyo Metro U), Joaquim GOMIS (U Barcelona), Piotr BIZON (Jagiellonian U, Krakow), Antonio GONZALEZ-ARROYO (IFT UAM/CSIC, Madrid), Peter GRASSBERGER (Jülich Research Center), Jorge RUSSO (U Barcelona), Alessandro SFONDRINI (ETH Zürich).
