My research interests are in Elementary Particle Physics and more particularly Quantum Chromo Dynamics (QCD) which constitutes a main pillar of the so-called Standard Model of elementary particle physics. This theory summarizes our current knowledge of the electro-weak and strong interactions and rather economically (with ca. 20 free parameters) describes all experiments carried out to date. Yet, the Standard Model has known limitations and physicists are keen to replace it by a more complete theory. Unfortunately, effects of unknown physics are difficult to detect and require very good quantitative control of the strong interactions, i.e. QCD. The only technique currently able to achieve this uses a lattice regularized version of QCD in combination with large scale numerical simulations. This approach ("lattice QCD") shares many features with real experiments, for instance one needs to control both statistical and systematic errors. Much of my work has been on the development of methods and techniques which have enabled progress in this area. Examples are non-perturbative renormalization and improvemnent techniques which help to accelerate and control the approach to the continuous limit and my results have been adopted by several other collaborations. Another example is a reformulation called "twisted mass QCD", a term I have coined and which was adopted by the European Twisted Mass Collaboration, involving ca. 30 researchers across Europe. I have applied lattice QCD to obtain results for elusive parameters such as the charm quark mass and the strong coupling constant alpha_s(m_Z). The latter is an important input parameter for the proton structure functions or predictions of certain Higgs decay rates. Finally I am interested in more formal developments, such as quantum field theories on manifolds with boundaries, which raises interesting conceptual questions.
