Luc Schnell

High Energy Physics Master Student

I am a high energy physics master student at ETH Zurich and École Polytechnique.
My main interest is theoretical particle physics, in particular BSM model building. Momentarily I focus on leptoquarks, hypothetical particles that arise in Grand Unified Theories (GUTs) and that could explain the flavour anomalies. In projects at CERN and the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI), I was able to gain experience on the experimental front as well.
