HEP Group Description

The group is interested in study standard model and beyond standard model phenomenology, ultrahigh energetic neutrino interactions and other high energy physics subjects applied to recent experiments such as the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). This task is accomplished by combining theoretical knowledge with state-of-art computational methods in order to understand the physics found in high energy experiments.
