Prof. Dr. Stefan Antusch
Stefan Antusch received his Diploma and Ph.D. at the Technische Universität München. He then worked as postdoc at the University of Southampton (from 2003 to 2005) and at the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid (from 2005 to 2007). From 2007 to 2011 he led a Max Planck Research Group at the Max-Planck-Institut für Physik (Werner-Heisenberg-Institut) in Munich. In 2011 he became Professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Basel. He was promoted to Full Professor in 2020.
What is the theory of matter, forces and the universe? Stefan Antusch's group is working on the development of a more fundamental elementary particle theory which resolves the challenges of the present "Standard Model", gives rise to a consistent evolution of the universe and which can be tested by ongoing and future experiments. Towards this goal, the group currently focuses on particle theories of the early universe, unified theories of forces and the origin of particle masses and mixings, as well on ways to probe new physics with neutrinos.
