Research interests

Hadron collider phenomenology:

  • production of coloured SUSY particles
      NNLL-fast: the code to calculate NNLL+ approximated NNLO squark and gluino production cross section,
      and its predecessor, NLL-fast
  • Higgs production
  • precision calculations, in particular:
  •   QCD resummation,
      electroweak corrections,
  • multiple parton scattering


PSR workshop 2016

After very successful meetings of the "Parton Showers, Event Generators and Resummation" workshop series in Münster in 2014 (see here) and in Cracow, Poland in 2015, the 2016 edition took place 4-6 July in Paris, France,  see the Indico webpage!
