Particle physicist and cosmologist Prof. Dr. Georgi Dvali
Professor Georgi Dvali is the internationally most renowned physicist in the interdisciplinary field of astroparticle physics. His work is equally stimulating for mathematical and theoretical physicists in the disciplines of string theory, elementary particle physics as well as cosmology and astrophysics. The scientist was awarded one of the first Humboldt Professorships in 2008, Germany’s most highly endowed research award.
Professor Dvali, until recently professor of theoretical physics at New York University and at CERN in Geneva, has been appointed professor and chair of Theoretical Elementary Particle Physics at the Arnold-Sommerfeld Center for Theoretical Physics at LMU. Georgi Dvali and his team will be closely connected with the Max Planck Institute for Physics, and will intensively cooperate in the new cluster of excellence “Origine and Structure of the Universe”, operated by Technische Universität München, LMU Munich and numerous different Max Planck Institutes in the greater Munich area.
