Stefan Hofmann leads Junior Research Group “Particle Physics and the Early Universe”

The Excellence Cluster Universe is happy to announce the start of the new Junior Research Group. The newly built group is led by Prof. Dr. Stefan Hofmann and will focus on research aspects related to particle physics in the early Universe, investigating the nature of dark matter and dark energy in particular. Dark matter and dark energy account for close to 95 per cent of the energy budget in the Universe and are subject to intense research. Both dark matter and dark energy are exciting aspects beyond the standard models of particle physics and cosmology. At the Universe Cluster, Stefan Hofmann's research will focus on cosmological challenges for fundamental theories.

Before joining the Excellence Cluster Universe, Stefan Hofmann was an assistant professor with the renowned Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics and the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. Prior to that he was a research fellow in cosmology, particle and and string theory at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Ontario, Canada and at the Stockholm University. Hofmann obtained both his PhD and diploma in Physics from the Johann-Wolfgang-von-Goethe-Universität, Frankfurt.
