Elisa Resconi appointed new Max Planck Fellow

Elisa Resconi was named Max Planck Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP). She will build a new research group dedicated to the theoretical and experimental aspects of neutrino physics. Elisa Resconi is Professor for Experimental Physics with Cosmic Particles at the TUM and spokesperson of the CRC1258 Neutrinos and Dark Matter in Astro- and Particle Physics.

The SFB1258 includes scientists from both institutes so that the research program of the new group complements the existing collaborations in the field of astroparticle physics. “Setting up a joint Fellow group provides us with the opportunity to expand our successful collaboration with additional topics in Neutrino Physics”, Elisa Resconi explains.

“We are all delighted to cooperate even more closely with the renowned neutrino researcher Elisa Resconi”, says Allen Coldwell, Managing Director of the MPP. “I hope this will bring us a couple of steps closer to solving the neutrino mystery.”

The Max Planck Fellow Program
The Max Planck Fellow Programme promotes cooperation between outstanding university professors and Max Planck Society researchers. The appointment of university professors as Max Planck Fellows is limited to a five-year period and also entails the supervision of a working group at a Max Planck institute. Currently, there are about 45 Max Planck Fellows active.
