I am a professor for theoretical
particle physics at RWTH Aachen University.
One of my favorite Feynman diagrams
My main research field is to understand and predict phenomena at particle colliders. Within the
last few years, I have been mostly interested in the physics of Higgs bosons
in and beyond the Standard Model. Recently, I have also become interested in improving the
connection between the perturbative and the lattice approach to quantum field theory
through the gradient-flow formalism.

It is important to try to
convey some of our excitement about physics to the general public,
high-school students, or politicians. As you can see in the Outreach section of this page, I have been quite active in this field. If you are
interested in organizing an outreach activity (public lecture, information for
high-school students etc.), feel free to

The Software item leads you to some
programs and scripts that I make available to the public.
Some of them are highly specialized to particle physicists, others
are more general. I appreciate your feedback.
I am also involved in a number of collaborative research projects:
the interdisciplinary DFG Research Unit on
The Epistemology of the LHC, the
DFG Transregio P3H on LHC phenomenology,
and a DFG Research Training Group studying
the heaviest particles at the LHC.
Concerning science administration, I am currently a member of the
and a Review Board member of the DFG.
