Krisztian Peters



Research Interests

Krisztian Peters’ 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, with the ATLAS Experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in Geneva. In addition, he is engaged in studying the research potential for a future electron-positron collider.

From 2010 - 2015 his main involvement were Higgs boson searches and precision measurements in the diphoton final state, where he was co-leading the ATLAS H→γγ group for 18 months. Before joining the Higgs analysis, he contributed to the measurement of the non-resonant diphoton production, which is the largest background to the resonant signal.

From 2005 - 2010 he was member of the DØ experiment, at the Tevatron collider near Chicago. His main physics analysis was the search for the Higgs boson (decaying to b-jets) produced in association with an invisibly decaying Z boson. Due to the experimental signatures of this search, he became interested and worked on several aspects of calorimetry. For two years, he co-lead DØ’s Higgs physics analysis programme, which comprised several search channels and their combination.

Krisztian Peters graduated with a thesis based on EW and QCD phenomenology, where he developed and computed resummed higher-order corrections to vector-boson scattering.
