Juan Rojo

STFC Rutherford Fellow

My research interests include Quantum Chromodynamics, Large Hadron Collider phenomenology, parton distributions functions, jet reconstruction and substructure and opportunities for Beyond the Standard Model searches from precision observables. I did my graduate studies at the University of Barcelona, followed by postdoctoral research fellowships at LPTHE (Paris VI), the University of Milano and at the Theory Unit of CERN. My complete Curriculum Vitae can be found here. My personal web page can be found here

I am the Principal Investigator of the European Research Council Starting Grant "PDF4BSM: Parton Distributions in the Higgs Boson Era", whose main goal is to provide next-generation sets of parton distributions functions for LHC phenomenology. The webpage of the project can be found here here

"Strong Interactions and LHC phenomenology", Theoretical Physics graduate course, Trinity Term 2014. The outline of the course and the references can be found here.
