    Research

    Particle Collider Physics

    Elementary particle physics explored at high energy collider accelerators, in particular study of proton structure proton-proton and in lepton-nucleon collisions with HERA-experiments; tests of Standard Model (precision measurements of W and Z, tests of QCD) with the ATLAS experiment in proton-proton collisions at the LHC; search for new heavy gauge bosons beyond the Standard Model and of LFV Higgs decays with ATLAS; study of beyond the SM physics and light Higgs boson searches with electron-proton collisions at the TeV scale. Collider physics phenomenology of Drell-Yan processes, higher electroweak and higher order QCD corrections.

    High-Energy Fixed Target Physics

    Study of polarised and unpolarised nucleon and nuclear structure with high-energy fixed target experiments (HERMES, and as referee for COMPASS experiment).
