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.

About the Podcast

Deep Tech Stories
A podcast making deep tech accessible by highlighting creators and pulling their tech from the lab into the real world.
What do you need to start a nuclear power start-up? How do you build a company from cutting-edge research? And how do you convince Venture Capitalists to support your quantum computing company?
Deep tech companies are based on significant scientific or engineering challenges, such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, nuclear fission and every other crazy thing you can and cannot yet imagine.

My name is Philipp. Currently, I am a PhD student in theoretical physics and in Deep Tech Stories, I explore the tech and stories behind exciting start-up founders and researchers in the deep tech space.
