Georg G. Raffelt
Senior staff scientist at the Max Planck Institute for Physics in Munich (Germany). His research focuses on the areas of theoretical astroparticle physics and cosmology. One of his specialities is supernova neutrinos and neutrino oscillations in dense media.

The universe at large is dominated on the one hand side by gravity and on the other by weakly interacting particles. The identity of dark matter remains an unresolved mystery of the universe. Meanwhile neutrinos have matured from their status as ghost particles to distinctly visible messengers for some of the most intriguing astrophysical phenomena.
