Richard Ruiz, member since October 2018
I am a high energy physicist and collider theorist. My primary research focuses on understanding the origin of tiny, nonzero neutrino masses and tests of neutrino mass models (Seesaw models) at collider experiments, such as the Large Hadron Collider. This includes extended gauge sectors (LR-Symmetric, GUT models), scalar sectors (SU(2)L doublets and triplets), and fermionic sectors (SU(2)L singlets and triplets). I have a particular interest in collider signatures involving initial-state electroweak vector bosons (vector boson fusion/scattering) and the impact of (resummed) QCD corrections on (new physics) collider processes. This includes resummation in the context of perturbative QCD and SCET.

Research statement
Many properties of the cosmos that we observe today can be understood as the result of quantum processes in the hot and dense plasma that filled the universe in the first moments after the "big bang". This allows cosmologists to understand the history of the observable universe in terms of elementary particles and the fundamental interactions between them. On the other hand, the extreme conditions in the primordial plasma allow particle physicists to test their ideas in an environment that cannot be created in the laboratory. With our research, we exploit this mutual benefit to learn about both, the fundamental laws of nature and how they shaped the cosmos that we live in.
