Our understanding of nature advances through the precise comparison of experimental measurements with theoretical predictions. For example, in the near future collider experiments at the LHC will widely allow for experimental statistical and systematical uncertainties at the percent and sub-percent level.
While the LHC is the biggest experimental facility humankind has ever built, true power to pinpoint open questions in physics comes from a combination of results from different experiments and theoretical disciplines. This ensures that we have a correct and unified theoretical description of the laws in our universe.
I contribute directly to these challenging tasks with my research that is aimed towards precision phenomenology of elementary particles with a focus on collider physics: I work at the interface of the technical community that delivers the bare techniques for tomorrow’s calculations and the users of precise predictions. My calculations ensure that the precision of theory predictions can compete with the level necessary for current and future experiments and that deviations can reliably be quantified.
