Philipp is an experimental particle physicist by training and an engineer at heart. He received his Ph.D. from Oxford, where he explored the phenomenal power of physics for the construction of particle detectors and studied the simplest object possible in nature with data from the Large Hadron Collider.
Philipp is fascinated by synergetic connections between different branches of science. In his cross-cutting work as a Grainger Fellow, he connects transportation theory to collider physics, characterizes the self-interaction of the Higgs boson as a member of the ATLAS Collaboration, and leverages the laws of electromagnetism to detect neutrinos from deep space within the Antarctic ice.
His office is MCP 145.
