Dan Hooper

I am an Associate Scientist in the Theoretical Astrophysics Group at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics at the University of Chicago. Previously, I was the David Schramm Fellow at Fermilab, and a postdoc at the University of Oxford. In 2003, I completed my Ph.D in physics at the University of Wisconsin.

My research focuses on the interface between particle physics and cosmology. I'm especially interested in questions about dark matter, supersymmetry, neutrinos, extra dimensions and cosmic rays. For a complete list of my scientific publications, see the SPIRES archive.

I can most easily be contacted by email (dhooper 'at' fnal.gov).
