Welcome to Michele Redi's physics webpage!I am interested in understanding how Nature works at the most fundamental level and this requires the study of the incredibly small (Elementary Particles) or incredibly big (The Universe). Theorists use the language of mathematics to understand the world but don't be scared by the big equations we are just after new ideas and discoveries. The two cornerstones of particle physics from the last century are General Relativity and the Standard Model of elementary particles. One rules everything on large distances, from the falling of apples to the evolution of the Universe. The second, based on quantum mechanics, describes all we know about the building blocks of matter and fundamental interactions. As theorists we are never satisfied and this for us is just the beginning. We know that the standard picture is incomplete and just an approximation of a deeper truth. We don't know when it will fall but sooner or later it will. We patiently work on the next physics revolution hoping that it will be even bigger. I mostly work on physics beyond the Standard Model of particles physics and cosmology, trying to build more beautiful theories that will replace the current theory at higher energies and studying their experimental implications. |
