    Research Interests

    Bernhard Mistlberger is interested in understanding the structure of fundamental interactions of nature. He focuses on deriving high-precision predictions for the outcome of scattering processes of fundamental particles that can be compared to recent measurements at the Large Hadron Collider. In particular, Bernhard is interested in the phenomenology of the recently discovered Higgs particle. Furthermore, he is interested in deepening our understanding of quantum field theory as a description of nature.

    Biographical Sketch

      Originally from Austria, Bernhard Mistlberger did his undergraduate studies at TU Vienna and earned his Ph.D. at ETH Zurich. During his Ph.D. research he performed precision computations in Higgs boson physics in collaboration with his supervisor Prof. C. Anastasiou. Next, Bernhard continued his research as a postdoctoral fellow at the theory division of CERN.
