Lorenzo Tancredi

Royal Society University Research Fellow

I am a theoretical particle physicist, mainly interested in mathematical methods in perturbative Quantum Field Theory and their application to collider physics.

After my undergraduate studies at the University of Bologna, I obtained my PhD from the University of Zurich. I spent three years as a Post doctoral research fellow at KIT in Karlsruhe, Germany, and two years as a research fellow at CERN, in Geneva. I joined the group in Oxford in October 2019 as a Royal Society University Research Fellow.

An updated list of my publications can be found here.

MT 2019: Tutor for B2 (Symmetry and Relativity) at St. Catherine's College.
HT 2020: Tutor for B5 (General Relativity) at St. Catherine's College.
MT 2020: Stipendiary Lecturer at St. Hilda's College.

My main research interest is in theoretical high-energy physics, in particular in relation to the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. My research is at the interface between new mathematical methods in quantum field theory and particle physics phenomenology: by studying the mathematical structures lurking behind scattering amplitudes and Feynman diagrams, I aim to develop new methods to study the physical implications of the Standard Model of particle physics at the LHC, in order to understand the details of the Higgs mechanism and possibly help discover signs of New Physics.
