Alexander Karlberg

Postdoctoral Researcher

I am a Postdoctoral Researcher in the group of Prof. Gavin Salam, working on the ERC funded PanScales project.

I did my DPhil at Merton College under the supervision of Prof. Giulia Zanderighi from 2012-16, and held a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at the University of Zurich from 2016-19 in the group of Prof. Thomas Gehrmann.

I did my undergraduate degrees at the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen 2007-12.

I am currently a non-stipendiary lecturer at Merton College teaching the B2 option in MT20 and Further Quantum Mechanics in HT20.

I have previously taught the C6 option in Theoretical Physics, Advanced Quantum Field Theory, and SM and Beyond within the department.

I held a lectureship at Merton College 2013-16, during which I taught the 2nd year course on Mathematical Methods and the 3rd year option in Particle Physics.

My research focuses on the phenomenology of the strong interactions. I am interested in the application of perturbative Quantum Chromodynamics to the physics program of the LHC and future colliders.

I am currently working on improving the PanScales showers in the context of spin correlations.
