I am an experimental high-energy particle physicist primarily interested in beyond the standard model physics and state-of-the-art instrumentation to allow us to further improve our understanding of the matter and the universe. My primary focus is on the search for new particles and interactions at the energy frontier, with the ATLAS experiment at the CERN LHC. In many cases, natural phenomena that initially appeared to be fine-tuned have turned out to result from the existence of other particles or interactions, and it is thus natural to expect this to be the case for the electroweak scale as well. It is therefore extremely likely that we will observe new physics at the LHC. In parallel, I am working on the development of a new search for neutron-anti-neutron oscillations at the European Spallation Source. Observing such oscillations would constitute a probe of grand unification and baryogenesis. In the past I have searched for neutrino oscillations and studied the proton structure.
