This is the official page of the research team "InterLeptons" at the High Energy Physics Institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences. The team, led by Dr. Gianluca Inguglia, is funded under the grant agreement nr. 947006 of the Starting Grant award offered by the European Research Council (ERC). The research activities of the team will be described and kept up-to-date on these pages.
The aim InterLeptons is to unveil the new physics nature of the so-called flavor anomalies implementing a bottom-up approach based on the studies of data collected at the Belle II experiment, located in the interaction region of the Super-KEKB collider. The team focuses on final state events containing leptons and a large amount of missing energy. The results of the searches will be interpreted in terms of low mass dark matter, new forces/interactions, and in terms of lepton flavor violating and lepton flavor non-universal couplings.
InterLeptons brings a significant advancement of a new research area in Austria with the potential of revolutionizing particle physics.
We are very happy to welcome on board two new members in our team.
Nadia Maslova join us as a student assistant and will work on different aspect of flavour anomalies. Abdul Basith join us as a postdoc; he will be involved for 50% of his time on the search for B->K(*)nunu with Belle data and Belle II software, and for the remaining 50% of his time he will perform work related to the Belle II SVD and SVD upgrade in the group of C. Schwanda. Best of luck to Nadia and Abdul!
