Darren Price is an experimental particle physicist and Senior Lecturer based at the University of Manchester. He currently holds a University Presidential Fellowship at Manchester, a Senior Experimental Fellowship at the IPPP Durham, and a Turing Fellowship at the Alan Turing Institute, London, where he leads the "Developing machine learning-enabled experimental design, model building and scientific discovery" project. He was previously supported by an STFC Ernest Rutherford Fellowship and by an EU-funded Marie Curie Research Fellowship, also at Manchester. Before that he was a postdoctoral fellow with Indiana University based at Fermilab, Chicago and CERN, Geneva.

He is a member of the ATLAS Collaboration at the Large Hadron Collider, at CERN, Geneva, and the Darkside-20k and Darkside-50 direct dark matter detection experiments based in the Gran Sasso National Laboratory (LNGS) in Assergi, Italy. He is also a member of the DZero Collaboration at Fermilab, Chicago, and previously performed research on the SuperNEMO neutrinoless double beta decay experiment.

Darren is Director of the STFC Centre for Doctoral Training in Data Intensive Science (4IR) at the University of Manchester. This Centre is a consortium across Manchester, Lancaster, and Sheffield Universities, with Manchester as the lead institute, covering fundamental research in astrophysics, particle physics and nuclear physics with industry/public/third sector engagement, placements, with joint training activities.
