Krisztian Peters is Leading Scientist at DESY, working in the field of particle physics. His current research activities focus on understanding the origin of mass and on searching for dark matter and other phenomena beyond the Standard Model of particle physics using the ATLAS Experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in Geneva. In addition, he studies the research potential for a future electron-positron collider. Previously, he worked on the D0 Experiment at Fermilab and the H1 Experiment at DESY. Krisztian Peters acquired his PhD with a thesis on electroweak and QCD phenomenology.
