Brief description This project aims to advance mankind's understanding of nature at the deepest level and will provide Australians the opportunity to work at the cutting edge of knowledge. While the universal matter-antimatter asymmetry and the existence of dark matter imply that new fundamental physics must exist, the nature of the new physics remains mysterious. This project will employ the Belle II experiment at the KEK Laboratory in Japan to make measurements of matter-antimatter asymmetries in the decays of sub-atomic particles called B-mesons. In addition the development of advanced data analysis techniques, secure high throughput computing, automated petabyte-scale data processing and advanced neural networks will provide highly trained data scientists able to tackle other problems such as Australia's cyber-security needs.
