Goran Senjanović is a theoretical physicist at the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP). He best known for his discovery of the See-Saw mechansim, which is arguably the most popular explanation for the lightness of the neutrinos. Further, he made many important contributions to left-right symmetric, supersymmetric and unified models.
In this brief interview, he shares advice for students who are interested in theoretical physics and tells us what he would like to change in the physics community. Enjoy!
Werner Rodejohann leads an independent research group in Heidelberg.
He is a leading expert in neutrino physics and here he shares with us among others his best advice for students.
So without further ado, let's dive in.
Steve F. King is a professor at the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Southampton and one of the leading experts when it comes to solutions of the flavour problem. One of the most exciting questions left unanswered by the standard model is: why are there three almost identical copies of all elementary particles? For example, why does the muon, a heavier copy of the electron, exist? "Who ordered that?"
We talk about his biggest discovery, his current work and he shares lots of advice for students who want to help solving the flavour puzzle.
I feel confident to say that this is the best interview here so far. Michal Malinský works at the Charles University in Prague and is an expert in a special type of models beyond the standard model, called Grand Unified Theories. He shares many invaluable tips and book recommendations for students who want to work on models beyond the standard model. In addition, we talk about his favorite books, his biggest discovery and much, much more.
Without further ado, meet Michal Malinský.
David Marsh is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics and his answers are a must-read for everyone who wants to make a career in cosmology. Marsh is a passionate skateboarder who was featured, for example, in Nature News and the Time Magazine Online. We talk about his biggest discovery, his advice for beginner students, his favourite books and much, much more.
Without further ado, here is the interview:
Claus Kiefer is one of the leading experts in quantum gravity and a professor at the University of Cologne.He authored a highly popular textbook called Quantum Gravity, which is a great starting point for any research in quantum gravity. We are very glad he took the time to answer some questions. He tells us about his biggest disccovery, shares many tips for students who are interested in quantum gravity and gives some insights on his current research. Enjoy!
