Professor, Head of the Particle Physics Division

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 Foundation.
