Focus of research is the LHCb experiment at CERN

  • Flavour physics with a focus on tests of fundamental symmetries in rare beauty decays
  • High level trigger: Development of fast tracking and trigger algorithms
  • Development of tracking detectors

A popular introduction into the CERN and the LHC, with videos from Dortmund, can be found here (in German).
