My research activities relate to the dark matter problem within a particle physics perspective. My theoretical work focuses on dark matter model building in connection with the problem of generation of neutrino masses and/or of the visible matter. My phenomenological research focuses on various aspects of dark matter detection (direct, indirect and at collider), with a particular attention to the statistical approach.

My main interest is to search for the signatures of new physics in the CMS data. My current research is based on a search for the Dark Matter candidate which is produced in associated with top quark pair in proton-proton collisions at LHC. This search could benefit the Matrix Element method to separate the ttbar background from signal.

I am a CMS experimentalist interested in connections between the Higgs boson and physics Beyond the Standard Model. In particular I am working on di-Higgs production at the LHC in the HbbHgg and HbbHWW channels. While the Standard Model cross-section of these process is very low, I am studying resonant production (WED, 2HDM, MSSM), and anomalous non-resonant production (EFT).

I'm a postdoctoral researcher in particle physics, member of the CMS collaboration. My main interest is in the search for physics beyond the Standard Model linked to the top quark. For this, I've directly contributed to the search for spin 1 and spin 0 resonances decaying to top-antitop during the Run 1 of the LHC. Currently, I'm working in a model-independent strategy to search for new physics, with concrete applications to the measurement of the ttH coupling, as well as the study of HH resonances.

Matthias Komm
Experimentalist in the realm of the CMS experiment at LHC, Geneva. I am studying processes involving single top quarks which provide direct probes of electroweak interactions. The second (2015-2018) operational period of LHC, with an expected luminosity of at least four times greater than its first round, will boost the sensitivity of the associated production of single top quarks with Higgs bosons. Such a process offers a stringent test for the SM predictions and serves as an excellent opportunity for identifying departures from this standard picture. Also, I am performing studies within fast detector simulations, i.e. in the context of CMS FastSim.
