Robert Fleischer

My research is on the phenomenology of the Standard Model and its extensions, with a focus on flavour physics and CP violation as probes for new physics, where the B-meson system plays a key role.

Jan-Willem van Holten

My research interests are classical and quantum gravity, cosmology and supersymmetry.

Eric Laenen

Phenomenology of the Standard Model, especially Quantum Chromodynamics.

Piet Mulders [VU]

My research involves Quantum Chromodynamics with emphasis on the quark and gluon polarization in hadrons as probed in high energy scattering processes.

Marieke Postma

I am interested in what the early universe can tell us about our models of particle physics.

Bert Schellekens

My research area is string theory, and especially the landscape of string theory vacua and the way the standard model is realized.

Juan Rojo [VU]

My research interests are focused on Quantum Chromodynamics and LHC phenomenology, and include the determination of the proton structure, jet reconstruction and substructure, and Higgs boson physics.

Jos Vermaseren

My work concerns the phenomenology and methodology of Perturbative Quantum Field Theory, in particular QCD. I am also in charge of FORM.
