Miha Nemevšek

My research is in particle physics at high energies and/or in the early universe. I hold a permanent staff member position at the Particle physics group of the Theoretical Physics Department F-1 at the Jožef Stefan Institute. I am an assistant professor at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics and teach at the University of Nova Gorica.

My field of interest is high energy physics and cosmology, in particular physics beyond the Standard Model. I am working on TeV scale physics, potentially observable at the LHC and interested in determining how certain theories relate collider observables to other phenomena at low energies and/or to cosmology.

The main focus of my research is on theories of neutrino mass and its origin, probing the seesaw mechanism at high and low energies, Left-Right symmetric theories and Grand Unification. I worked on the connection between dark matter, the LHC and first order phase transitions.

My team is also working on further developing the theory of false vacuum decay with my Phd students Victor Guada and Marco Matteini.
