Professor in Particle
Particle Physics is the
subject matter of the fundamental building blocks of matter and the
forces that act on them. Research in in this area advances our knowledge
about the foundations of physics, and by that our understanding of dark
matter, cosmology, and the functioning of micro-cosmos. Particle Physics
deeply affects our conception of the world.
My main activities are the
Light Dark Matter eXperiment (LDMX) and ATLAS.
We propose LDMX to search for light dark matter.
It will be able to search light dark matter of all particle natures, and
with a sensitivity orders of magnitude better than what is required as
deduced from the astronomically observed dark matter abundance.
is a facility installed at the Large Hadron collider at CERN. It explores
the subatomic world at the highest mass scales available on the
laboratory, and is the world’s most powerful microscope. With ATLAS I try to see if what we today
believe are the basic constituents, have themselves a substructure, and with
I search heavy dark matter.
experimental task of our experiments demands a wide range of technical
research and development of detector-technology, electronics, data
transmission, mechanical engineering and information technology.
My employer Lund
University, and the Swedish Research Council, support my acivities.
