The Young Investigators Group "Searches for Dark Matter and Axion-Like Particles at Belle II" is situated at DESY and working at the Belle II experiment in Japan.

We are focussing on Dark Matter searches including the searches for Dark Photons decaying into light Dark Matter and Axion-Like Particles (ALPs). These searches are highly competitive with small datasets that can be acquired in several months of data taking utilizing the extremly high interactions rates at Belle II.

Our activities are closely related to the reconstruction of photons in the electromagnetic calorimeter (ECL) of Belle II. We are leading the ECL reconstruction software development with a strong focus on Machine Learning including Deep Neural Networks to improve photon detection and identification.

I am always looking for undergraduate (bachelor, master/diploma) and graduate (Ph.D.) students to join the group. If you are interested please contact me.
