„The research work of my group concentrates on experimental elementary particle physics with special focus on flavour physics.

We are trying to find hints for new and yet unobserved particles and interactions that might help to explain some of the open questions in the field. Famous examples are: What is the reason for the observed matter-animatter asymmetry in the universe? Can we find potential dark matter candidates? Why do matter particles come in three copies with increasing mass?

We try to shed light on these questions by analysing data collected by the LHCb experiment. LHCb is one of the four detectors at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). My group is focusing on rare decay processes of hadrons containing charm quarks, which are particularly sensitive to tiny contributions from unknown particles. Given the large charm production rate at the LHC, this opens the opportunity to look for new phenomena in processes that have never been studied before.

Location & approach

The campus of the Technical University of Dortmund is located near the freeway junction Dortmund West, where the Sauerland line A45 crosses the Ruhr expressway B1/A40. The Dortmund-Eichlinghofen exit on the A45 leads to the South Campus, the Dortmund-Dorstfeld exit on the A40 leads to the North Campus. The university is signposted at both exits.

The "Dortmund Universität" S-Bahn station is located directly on the North Campus. From there, the S-Bahn line S1 runs every 20 or 30 minutes to Dortmund main station and in the opposite direction to Düsseldorf main station via Bochum, Essen and Duisburg. In addition, the university can be reached by bus lines 445, 447 and 462. Timetable information can be found on the homepage of the Rhine-Ruhr transport association, and DSW21 also offer an interactive route network map.

 

 

One of the landmarks of the TU Dortmund is the H-Bahn. Line 1 runs every 10 minutes between Dortmund Eichlinghofen and the Technology Center via Campus South and Dortmund University S, while Line 2 commutes every 5 minutes between Campus North and Campus South. It covers this distance in two minutes.

 

 

From Dortmund Airport, it takes just over 20 minutes to get to Dortmund Central Station by AirportExpress and from there to the university by S-Bahn. A wider range of international flight connections is offered by Düsseldorf Airport, about 60 kilometers away, which can be reached directly by S-Bahn from the university's train station.

The facilities of TU Dortmund University are spread over two campuses, the larger Campus North and the smaller Campus South. Additionally, some areas of the university are located in the adjacent "Technologiepark".
