The prediction of gravitational waves from the early Universe relies on calculations of the false vacuum decay rate. I describe a new method to do so.
How stellar death teaches us about particle physics, explained through a cool plot.
Particle physics through gravitational waves: the existence of the heavy black holes detected by LIGO/Virgo has implications for the lightest particles.
I wrote a little poem for all my friends holding their breath until January 7th.
Last summer, one of my role models died. Together with a close friend, I wrote an obituary for Ann Elizabeth Nelson.
An explanation of internal symmetries in particle physics without mathematics, using my own face, a mirror, and a simple graph.
The Future Circular Collider (FCC) is estimated to cost $10 billion. How much money is that actually? The QM compares 10 similarly priced things.
How 19 authors united behind #ParticlesforJustice and I made many new friends.
In light of my first (co-)supervision experiences, I reflect on the importance of patient and supportive mentorship in my own scientific career.
In the first of the physics doomsday series: false vacuum decay, what it is, what it means for humankind, and how worried we should be.
