I am a physicist who is currently working at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN).
For my doctoral thesis I worked on the characterization of the particle beam focusing for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). I developed a new measurement analysis method, which is based on a detailed analysis of systematic and statistical error sources and their correlations, to increase the accuracy and precision of the derived parameters. It has been used successfully online in the LHC control room during the commissioning at an unprecedented energy of 6.5 TeV. In this process, a significantly enhanced quality of the beam focusing has been achieved. This allowed to increase the machine performance by operating with a stronger beam focusing than its design parameters.
In my current project I work on the design of a future high energy particle collider.
