Professor Stewart Boogert

Personal profile

Graduated in physics from Imperial College of Science Technology and Medicine in 1998, MSci Physics. D. Phil in Particle physics from Oxford, St. Catherines College 2002. From 2002 till 2005 I was a Post Doctoral Research Assistant (PDRA) in Particle Physics, specifically the Linear Collider at University College London. I have been an acadmic staff member Royal Holloway in Accelerator Physics since 2005.

Research interests

I am currently the Deputy Director of the John Adams Institute for Accelerator Science, a joint venture between the universities of Oxford, Imperial College of Science Technology and Medicine and Royal Holloway. My research interests span the portfolio of accelerator research activities at Royal Holloway.   

My research interests are primarily in the development of state of the art accelerator beam diagnostics, devices used to understand and control high energy, low emittance charged particle beams. It includes cavity beam position monitor systems, laser-electron beam interactions, control systems, beam dynamics and feedback systems.

Another aspect of my research is the upgrade of the Large Hadron Collider, so called High Luminosity LHC. Royal Holloway has developed a Geant4 based code to simulate the seemless passage of particles through an accelerator and into detector and other systems. 


I teach mainly Astronomy related courses (due to my interest in optics),  PH2900 Astronomy and PH3920 Stellar Astrophysics, I supervise 3rd and 4th year projects. I teach the University of London Particle Physics postgraduate course, Accelerator Physics. PhD students in Accelerator physics.
