Meet new KICP associate fellow: Philipp Windischhofer

Philipp Windischhofer

I am an experimental particle physicist by training and an engineer at heart, working at the intersection of instrumentation, collider physics, and astroparticle physics. 

In my cross-cutting research, I am connecting transportation theory with applications in collider physics, characterizing the (self-)interactions of the Higgs boson with data from the Large Hadron Collider, and formalizing the physics of particle detectors.

I am now applying this diverse set of tools to the radio detection of ultra-high energy neutrinos. I am involved in the RNO-g experiment at Summit Station, Greenland, where I develop codes for the first-principles simulations of radio propagation through glacial ice and devise new schemes for the calibration of the instrument to maximize its physics reach.
