Welcome to my website. I am a Junior Staff Member in the DESY Theory Group, working on Physics Beyond the Standard Model.

Currently I'm 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. To find out more check out my News page or directly find my papers on Inspire.

I studied physics at the University of Wurzburg and at the ETH in Zurich. In 2010 I obtained my PhD in theoretical physics from the University of Zurich, working in the group of Daniel Wyler. Before coming to DESY I was a Fellow of the CERN Theory Division and a Postdoc at Argonne National Laboratory and at the University of Illinois, Chicago.
