Phenomenology of Fundamental Interactions Group GFIF
Academic Unit: Faculty of Exact and Natural Sciences
Colombian Ministry of Science
The group undertakes research in basic physics and particularly in elementary particle physics and general relativity. We seek to deeply study physics beyond the Standard Model, both theoretically and experimentally, in order to solve great questions of contemporary physics that have implications on cosmology and astrophysics. Specifically, we study dark matter models (both theoretical and experimental), models beyond the Standard Model, and b quark physics. The experimental branch is dedicated to the CMS experiment of CERN’s LHC, and as part of it we carry out all of the experiment’s tasks, including Monte Carlo analysis, software development, experimental data analysis, and detector physics (encompassing electronics and data acquisition systems.) In addition, as part of our commitment to science in general, we continually engage in science dissemination and bibliometric studies.
