David Latimer

Professor and Chair, Physics

David Latimer’s research interests primarily lie in nuclear and particle theory, with an emphasis upon neutrino phenomenology, which has promise as a means of exploring impenetrable and cosmological environments. He has used experimental data to study neutrino oscillations and pursued studies into neutrinos that travel over great distances through the Earth’s interior. He has been investigating novel ways to assess the particle properties of dark matter. He co-wrote Optical dispersion of composite particles consisting of millicharged constituents,” in Journal of Physics G: Nuclear and Particle Physics (2016). Latimer’s teaching has included physics, electricity and magnetism, quantum mechanics, classical mechanics, and general relativity. Latimer has been working on a project titled “Electromagnetic Interactions of Majorana Fermions.”
