# Potential student research projects

The Research School of Physics & Engineering performs research at the cutting edge of a wide range of disciplines.

By undertaking your own research project at RSPE you could open up an exciting career in science.

## Filter projects

## Theoretical Physics

### Lie algebras in particle physics
