Professor, Head of the Particle
My main activity is ATLAS,
a global project to build and exploit a scientific facility at the CERN Large Hadron Collider.
The scientific purpose is to advance our
understanding of the fundamental building blocks of matter and the forces
that act on them. This advances our understanding on questions like dark
matter, cosmology, properties of the vacuum and force unification. Thus,
it is a subject that deeply affects our conception of the world.
The challenging experimental task of ATLAS
demands a wide range of technical research and development of
detector-technology, electronics, data transmission, mechanical
engineering and information technology.
My activities are
supported by my employer, Lund University, by the Swedish Research
Council, by the European Commission, and by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg
