Professor Caterina Doglioni on the Hunt for Dark Matter, Career Decisions and the Academic Environment

Published on: 1st August, 2021

When most people think about particle accelerators like CERN, they don't necessarily think of useful innovation with societal impact. It's just theoretical tinkering without much real-world application after all. However, this couldn't be further from the truth. Improvements in particle accelerators that were necessary to discover new physics lead to many inventions over the years. Among the most prominent stand the majority of modern medical imaging technology and the internet, allowing for a huge playground for deep tech companies.

With the much-awaited discovery of the, in 1954 proposed, Higgs particle in 2013, the so-called standard model of particle physics was considered to be completed. Yet, particle physicists like Professor Caterina Doglioni in Lund keep innovating and improving their techniques to go beyond the standard model and explain the so-far elusive Dark Matter.
