Patrick Koppenburg

Physicist at Nikhef on the LHCb Experiment at CERN

LHCb

I am working on the LHCb experiment, in charge of the user analysis software framework. Previously I was chair of the editorial board (2018-20), physics coordinator (2014-15) and operations coordinator (2010-14) of the LHCb experiment.

Research

My interests are focused on sub-leading contributions from so-called penguin diagrams. Electroweak penguins are a laboratory of new physics. QCD penguins are potentially bringing new phases into the game. I do precision measurements to learn more. And hopefully find physics beyond the standard Model.

I am also involved in the study of new forms of matter: tetraquarks and pentaquarks. My summer student was among the first to spot pentaquarks in 2011.

Media

I believe it is important to explain to the public what we are doing and why.

What I do

My output are papers, reports and talks. See below.
