Scientific Director - McDonald Institute
Professor, Canada Research Chair - Particle Astrophysics
Dr. Anthony Noble obtained a B.Sc. in Physics & Math from the University of New Brunswick, and an M.Sc. and Ph.D. (1990) in particle physics from the University of British Columbia. He then worked at CERN as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Zürich before accepting research scientist positions at the Centre for Research in Particle Physics in Ottawa and TRIUMF. Now at Queen’s University since 2002, he has been working with the astroparticle physics group there to develop a world class research team focused on the activities at SNOLAB. With the completion of the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO) experiment, his interests have been focused on dark matter experiments at SNOLAB where he is participating in the DEAP-3600 liquid argon experiment, and the PICO experiment using superheated fluids. These experiments aim to detect the mysterious dark matter that appears to dominate the matter budget of the Universe, but which has never been directly observed on Earth. He has also performed numerous accelerator based experiments at TRIUMF, Brookhaven and CERN and he spent a sabbatical year working on the ANTARES high energy neutrino telescope located on the Mediterranean seabed. Dr. Noble is the Scientific Director of the McDonald Institute.
