Brief description Particle physics aims to understand the fundamental constituents of matter and their interactions. This proposal aims to address long standing puzzles of matter such as the origin of fundamental particle masses, and the cosmological dark matter abundance, with the intensity-frontier Belle II detector and SuperKEKB collider complex in Japan. It will secure the Australian position at the forefront of particle physics by leading the data preparation for Belle II, its ensuing detector commissioning, and data analysis. This project will provide unique insight in our endeavour to complete the theory of the universe at the smallest scale, directed by the CI who leads the physics program for the Belle II collaboration.
