DR BRIAN COX - EXPLAINING GRAVITY SPACE TIME AND WAVES [In Tucson, Arizona, US] Professor Dr Brian Cox (Born, 3 March 1968, Oldham, Lancs) [University of Manchester, Professor of Particle Physics]. He is a Royal Society University Research Fellow based in the Particle Physics group at the University of Manchester, where he holds a chair in Particle Physics. He works on the ATLAS experiment at CERN in Geneva. His main research interest is the FP420 R&D project, aimed at upgrading ATLAS and CMS with forward proton detectors 420m away from the interaction points. In the past, he worked at the H1 experiment at DESY in Hamburg, and the D0 experiment at the Tevatron at Fermilab, Chicago. He defends the expenditure & research spent on the Large Hadron Collider ("LHC") located at CERN, Geneva, Switzerland. Dr Brian Cox previously played keyboards in the boy band D:ream in 1997: "Things can only get better..." He is now married to TV presenter Gia MILINOVICH - done in secret. [She runs a blog where threads include a discussion of whether her husband is gay]. COX now divides his time between Oldham and London, where his wife lives with 11-year-old Moki, her son from a previous marriage. The couple's first date was on 11 September 2001, and they married four years ago in her mother's front room in Duluth, Minnesota. He only told his own parents when he got back. 'I'm a northern man. I don't like any fuss,' he explains. Milinovich's most recent blog post says touchingly: 'There have been many times over the years when I've been extremely proud of my lovely husband. His appearance on Newsnight is right at the bloody top of the list.' When in Geneva, he uses computer 'iChat' to keep in touch with Gia and Moki before going for dinner. A recent newspaper article, in which he described rambling back to his room having usually drunk about a bottle of Châteauneuf du Pape, annoyed his colleagues who said it implied that Cern was a tax-funded drinking den. Cox admits that he hates waking up in the morning, staying in bed until 9am if he can. But he is hardly unfit, running half-marathons and playing football with university colleagues; he used to have a season ticket at Oldham Athletic. These days his taste in music is jazz and singers such as Billie Holiday.
