Dr. Doreen Wackeroth, Physics
Doreen Wackeroth received her diploma in Physics from the Technical University Munich in 1992, followed by a Ph.D. from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in 1995. From 1995 to 2002 she worked as a postdoctoral associate for various laboratories including the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, Paul Scherrer Institute, and the University of Rochester sequentially. In 2002 she accepted a job at the University of Buffalo. Her research in theoretical elementary particle physics aims to confront and challenge our understanding of the fundamental forces of nature and the mechanism of mass generation at the quantum level through precision experiments. Some of her research projects include understanding the phenomenology of the SM of particle physics and beyond as well as quantum field-theoretical treatment of unstable particles. Additionally her group performs radiative corrections calculations (perturbative Quantum Field Theory) to the production of Top-quark pairs, W-boson pairs, W,Z and Higgs bosons, at existing and future hadron and lepton colliders within the SM and its supersymmetric extensions. These calculations are then implemented into Monte Carlo generators which deliver precise predictions based on the experimental conditions.
