Anson Hook obtained his Ph.D. from Stanford University in 2012. Afterwards, he did postdoctoral work at the Institute for Advanced Study and Stanford. He joined the faculty at the University of Maryland in 2018. Hook works in theoretical particle physics. He focuses on theories beyond the standard model (model building), analyzing the signatures of these new theories at current experiments (phenomenology) and designing new experiments to look for evidence of dark matter.
