The Lund Theoretical Particle Physics group consists of eleven senior scientists, five post-doctoral fellows and nine PhD students.
Christian Bierlich, Rikkert Frederix, Leif Lönnblad, Stefan Prestel, Malin Sjödahl, Torbjörn Sjöstrand, Korinna Zapp and Gösta Gustafson (emeritus) work on various aspects of QCD and collider phenomenology, with emphasis on event generator development and applications thereof. Johan Bijnens mainly works on hadron and flavour physics, notably with chiral perturbation
theory as a tool. Johan Rathsman and Roman Pasechnik are mainly working on the phenomenology of physics beyond the Standard Model, especially Higgs physics and unified gauge theories.
We enjoy good relations with the experimental particle physics group in Lund, which is a member of ATLAS and ALICE, and which explores the possibility of fundamental physics experiments at the upcoming European Spallation Source in Lund and in the search for Dark Matter (LDMX).
