Research interests

  • Electroweak Corrections in BSM Models
  • Cosmological Implications on the Collider Phenomenology
  • Electroweak Phase Transitions and Electroweak Baryogenesis
  • Extended Higgs Sectors

PhD Topic

In my PhD I study possible cosmological phenomena constraining viable parameter space in BSM models. For instance we investigate the electroweak baryogenesis to link the needed baryon-asymmetry of the universe with possible future collider observables like the trilinear Higgs self-coupling.

(Under)Graduate Studies

  • During my master thesis I worked on the electroweak phase transition in the Next-to-minimal-Two Higgs doublet model which extends the real two Higgs doublet model with an additional singlet. I investigated the viable parameter space allowing for a strong first order electroweak phase transition and being compatible with recent precission measurements of the LHC.
  • My bachelor thesis dealt with sum rules obtained by considering the gauge symmetries of the quark content of the B-meson.
