Christophe Grojean

Theoretical particle physics

Christophe Grojean is a member of the DESY theory group. He started his research work in theoretical high energy physics at the French research organisation CEA in Saclay and got his PhD from Orsay University in 1999. After two years at the University of California in Berkeley he returned to Saclay, followed by a visiting professorship at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and a seven-year employment at CERN. In autumn 2012, he joined the Institut de Física d’Altes Energies at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona as an ICREA Research Professor. Christophe Grojean has worked on various topics in particle physics beyond the Standard Model. He is a specialist in the physics and the dynamics of the Higgs boson and its possible various incarnations, based on different theories behind, respectively. In his new position he is working in close contact with experimentalists to establish the profile of this new particle. He is also involved in various working groups to define the physics case of the next colliders after the LHC.
