High Energy Phenomenology in the LHC Era
The project has a broad scientific agenda addressing topical questions of high energy phenomenology ranging from collider physics to cosmology. The project members are based at the Department of Physics of the University of Helsinki, but active collaboration links exist to a number of universities and research centers both in Scandinavia and elsewhere.
At the moment, the most active research directions of the project include:
- Beyond the Standard Model phenomenology at the LHC
- Particle cosmology; in particular baryogenesis and dark matter
- Properties of strongly interacting matter in ultrarelativistic heavy ion collisions and compact stars
- Applications of the gauge/gravity duality
