Particle physics and cosmology

The main focus of the research is to understand the fundamental structure of elementary particle physics and gravity and to establish connections with observations performed at various scales, such as in collider or table-top lab experiments as well as in cosmological and astrophysical observations.

This includes:

  • understanding the quantum substructure of black holes and of cosmological space-times,
  • ultraviolet completion of the Standard Model and gravity,
  • building models beyond the Standard Model for addressing long-standing puzzles such as the hierarchy problem, origin of quark and lepton families, strong CP problem, origin of dark matter and dark energy, and microscopic origin of inflation.
