Starting October 2, Benjamin Jäger has joined CP3-Origins as a Danish IAS assistant professor.

Ben got his PhD from Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz, where he worked with Professor Hartmut Wittig on the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon and the electromagnetic form factors of the nucleon. Afterwards he spent three years as a Postdoctoral Researcher at Swansea University and one year at the ETH Zürich.

His current research is focused on tackling the sign problem in particle physics, for which he uses Complex Langevin simulations to circumvent the sign problem entirely. These simulations have been successfully tested on QCD in the heavy quark limit and allow an ab initio determination of the QCD phase diagram, which is essential to understand the evolution of the early universe. Recently he also published results on the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon, and the axial and electromagnetic form factors of the nucleon.
