Recent Work:

The Wuppertal physics department hosts a Physics Colloquium which I co-organize.
The particle theory group runs, among other things, the CSiS master program.
Our SFB/TR-55 where Sara Collins and myself jointly head the project on charm physics.
The homepage of our Budapest-Marseille-Wuppertal (BMW) lattice QCD collaboration with some output:
 • Ab initio determination of light hadron masses: Science 322, 1224 (2008) with supplementary online material.
 • Lattice QCD at the physical point: light quark masses with simulation and analysis details.
 • SU2 ChPT low-energy constants: Determination with staggered and clover-improved Wilson fermions.
 • Ab initio calculation of neutron-proton mass difference (QCD plus QED simulations): Science 347, 1452 (2015) or as preprint.
I was named a Distinguished EPJ Referee in 2015.
