We are part of the Theoretical High Energy Physics (THEP) group at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz. On the THEP website you can find a complete list of our current students and postdocs.
We are also members of the Cluster of Excellence PRISMA and closely connected to the Mainz Institute of Theoretical Physics (MITP).

Former Members

Maik Selch (MSc Thesis, 2019).
Julien Laux (BSc Thesis, 2018), now at JGU.
Christiane Scherb (Summer internship, 2017), now back for the PhD with us!
Bianca Mecaj (PRISMA internship, 2017), now at JGU.
Julian Parrino (BSc Thesis, 2017), now at JGU.


I am a professor in the Theoretical High Energy Physics group at Mainz University. The focus of my research group is on physics beyond the standard model and cosmology. We are trying to figure out why there is more matter than anti-matter in the Universe, what dark matter is made of and what kind of new physics the LHC might detect.

Some of the topics we are currently working on are:

Recent publications

All publications and preprints can be found on Inspire. If you are interested in doing your Bachelor, Master or PhD thesis in my group, please contact me (Please attach a short CV and transcripts of grades).
