High Energy Physics
High energy physics involves the study of the fundamental building blocks of nature at the shortest distances. These are the fundamental particles that are described by quantum fields such as the Higgs field found at CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Our group studies theories beyond the Standard Model of particle physics both from theoretical and phenomenological perspectives.

Latest High Energy Physics News & Events
Stellar Compact object mergers are not only important sources of gravitational waves but also central engines that power electromagnetic transients and r-processes, if matter is involved. I will review recent progress modeling the merger of black hole-neutron star and neutron stars binaries highlighting state-of-the-art general relativistic hydrodynamic simulations.
