Our group is working on searches for new physics using Higgs boson signatures,

with the aim to shed light on the big unsolved mysteries at the interface of particle physics and cosmology:

the generation of the matter-antimatter asymmetry and the dark sector.


The group is funded by the German Research Foundation.
