Theoretical Particle Physics & Collider Phenomenology


Our group is active in the field of theoretical particle physics and in particular particle-physics phenomenology at high-energy colliders such as the LHC. We develop theoretical methods and tools to predict the outcome of collision experiments in the framework of the Standard Model or New Physics extensions of it. We design strategies to efficiently search for physics beyond the Standard Model. We are involved in the Sherpa Monte Carlo project, a multi-purpose event generator for the LHC.
