Welcome to our group!
Our main field of research is experimental
High Energy Physics (HEP). We study proton-proton
collisions at the largest and most energetic
particle accelerator in the world, the Large Hadron
Collider or LHC, located in Geneva, Switzerland
at the European physics laboratory CERN.
Our primary research is at the CMS experiment,
one of the four largest particle detectors in the LHC.
Another research area is the development and
construction of a muon tomography system for
detecting heavy elements hidden in cargo.

Demystify the universe
Are there extra-dimmensions of space? What is dark matter? Are there new fundamental forces or interactions? What is the origen of mass? Why is there a matter-antimatter asymmetry in the Universe?
We are searching for answers to the most fundamental questions about the mysteries of the Universe.
Develop new technology
We are using the latest detector technolgy to study in detail the collisions produced in the LHC. New tools are being developed to handle and analyze the enormous volume of data collected by the CMS experiment. Improved
and new detectors are being developed for future high intensity operations at the LHC.
Explore new ideas
The Standard Model of particle physics is a succesful theory but still cannot explain the most fundamental questions about the Universe. Many new theories beyond the standar model have been proposed and are being tested
at the LHC. We also explore new ideas to test new theories in simulations of future new particle collider experiments.
