Particles, Fields & Astronomy
Research Focus: Particles, Fields & Astronomy
This research area focuses on fundamental questions about the origin and nature of our Universe: How can we relate its quantum nature to gravity? What are its fundamental constituents from sub-atomic scales to the scales of galaxies and how do they interact with each other? What is dark matter? What is the nature of black holes? These and further related questions are investigated within particle phenomenology, observational and theoretical astrophysics and astronomy, quantum field theory and string theory.
