A dragonfly.

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.
