Staff members with discipline Physics, Particles & Fields

Academia develops at the interface of different fields. This is one reason why the University of Groningen is home to a wide range of fields, each with a great number of subject specialists. The overview below, which is based on a standard categorization of fields, will help you find the right expert for each field. If you cannot find the expert you are looking for in this list, try searching via a related field or faculty; you may find him or her there.

Field / Discipline
I am interested in the following topics:(1) Tests of quantum gravity in a table-top experiment, See my ideas on "Spin entanglement witness for quantum gravity."

(2) Resolution of cosmological and black hole singularities, non-local, ghost-free infinite derivative gravity,

(3) Early universe cosmology, inflation, preheating/reheating, embedding inflation within particle and string theory,

(4) Primordial gravitational waves, Cosmological phase transitions, Non-Gaussianities

(5) The common origin behind dark matter & baryogenesis, beyond the Standard Model, SUSY, MSSM flat Directions, Q-balls, topological and non-topological solitons,

(6) Primordial magnetic field and its generations,

(7) Cosmobiology & habitability or habitable zones in the Universe.   


If you wish to do PhD at Van Swinderen Institute on Inflationary Cosmology, Beyond the Standard Model Physics, Supersymmetric Cosmology, Dark Matter & Baryogenesis, Primordial Gravitational Waves, Asymptotically Free Quantum Gravity and its connection to String field theory, Tests of Quantum Gravity in a Laboratory, and Resolution of Big Bang Cosmological singularity & Blackhole Singularity problems contact me for further information: anupam.mazumdar@rug.nl
