Research

My research explores the strong interaction - one of the four fundamental forces of nature. Quantum field theory (accounting for special relativity and quantum effects) of this interaction is called Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD). In the low energy regime QCD defines the mechanisms for the interaction of hadrons (protons, ...) as well as their properties. In particular, the vast part of the mass of hadrons -- thus of the most part of the visible Universe -- is due to QCD.

My scientific contributions (see INSPIREhep) explore the interface between numerical calculations of Lattice QCD, phenomenology and experiment. The links below will lead you to the full open source articles () and some talks on corresponding topics ().
