I have been a Professor of Theoretical Physics at Sussex since 2018, where I work researching the possible laws of physics thay might underly the Standard Model of elementary particle physics, the currently most fundamental experimentally established description of natural phenomena.

I first joined Sussex in 2009 as a Lecturer. Prior to Sussex, I was Junior (Assistant) Professor of Theoretical Physics at Technische Universität München, Germany.

I obtained my PhD from TUM (2003) for my dissertation Supersymmetric SO(10) unification and flavor-changing weak decays.

Following my PhD, I was a postdoc at RWTH Aachen, where I performed the first next-to-next-to-leading order calculations in the context of collinear (QCD) factorization of hadronic B decays, then at the Arnold Sommerfeld Center of the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, and then a Fellow in the CERN Theory Group, making various conceptual, technical and phenomenological contributions to the search for physics Beyond the Standard Model - primarily through flavour-changing and CP-violating processes.
