New lattice faces at CP3-Origins

This autumn, the lattice field theory group at CP3-Origins has been joined by three new young researchers, PhD student Enrico Fiorenze, and post docs Felix Ziegler and Justus Tobias Tsang.

Tobias received his PhD in 2016 at the University of Southampton under the supervision of Dr Andreas Jüttner. The main topic of research during his PhD was finding a suitable discretisation of charm quarks within the domain wall fermion formulation. He then did a postdoc at the University of Edinburgh mostly working on his two main areas of his research: Precision flavour physics and the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon.
He has worked in collaborations with his colleagues from the RBC and UKQCD collaborations as well as with the JLQCD group in Japan.

At CP3 Tobias is working on massive QED with Michele Della Morte as well as in collaboration with the lattice quantum field theory group.

Felix received his PhD in 2019 at the University of Heidelberg in Germany. He worked under the supervision of Jan M. Pawlowski on thermodynamic properties of strongly correlated field theories on the lattice. During his PhD Felix conducted a research stay in Washington DC within the HGS-HIRe abroad program working with Andrei Alexandru on the sign problem in lattice field theories.

At CP3 Felix works with Ben Jäger on the exploration of the QCD phase diagram as well as in collaboration with the local lattice group.

Enrico got his Master's Degree in Physics at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata” in Italy. He studied Non-Perturbative Renormalisation in Lattice-QCD with four dynamical quark flavours with Prof. Roberto Frezzotti and Dr. Petros Dimopoulos.
He is currently working within the ETMC (Extended Twisted Mass Collaboration) on the determination of the Renormalization constants of quark bilinear operators, with a particular focus on the reduction of the calculation systematics, in order to get a suitable precision for QED corrections.

At CP3-Origins Enrico will study Composite Extensions of the Standard Model both theoretically and on the Lattice.
