I am a professor at the
Institute for Theoretical Particle Physics and Cosmology at
University, and an associate member of the CERN Theory Division
and the Higgs Centre
for Theoretical Physics.
My research is focused on physics beyond the Standard Model at the Large Hadron Collider LHC, and on exploring models of dark matter in collider and astroparticle physics. Like almost everyone else I have recently started to work on machine learning. I am also interested in the philosophy of science.
I am a co-coordinator of a Collaborative Research Centre on Particle Physics Phenomenology after the Higgs Discovery, a principle investigator in a Research Training Group on Physics of the Heaviest Particles at the LHC, and a principle investigator in a Research Unit on The Epistemology of the Large Hadron Collider.
In the recent past I have served as Head of the Department of Physics, as a member of the review board ''Particles, Nuclei and
Fields'' of the German Research Foundation DFG and as a member of the European Committee for
Currently, I am a member of the German Committee for Particle Physics (KET), and I am a representative of the Rectorate for safeguarding Good Scientific Practice at RWTH Aachen University.
