Robert Thorne

Robert Thorne works on QCD and the Standard Model, and in particular parton distribution functions (PDFs), describing the composition of the proton in terms of constituent quarks, antiquarks and gluons. He has been a member of the MRST, MSTW and most recently MMHT collaborations which provide PDFs for use at the LHC and other particle experiments, having obtained them from a fit to all available collider data. He is a member of the PDF4LHC steering committee and of the PDF subgroup of the LHC Higgs Cross Section Working Group
