Prof. Dr. Elisa Resconi

Since 2019 I am TUM Liesel Beckmann Distinguished Professors and chair of  Experimental Physics with Cosmic Particles. 

My focus is on neutrino astronomy which is subdivided over two main areas: particle physics (oscillation experiments, neutrino mass ordering, atmospheric neutrino modelling) and astrophysics (cosmic accelerators as blazars, pulsar wind nebulae etc). The research group is working on data analysis, statistical methods, combination of astronomical data and development of calibration sensors.

Until 2010, I have been head of an Emmy Noether research group based at the Max-Planck-Institute für Kernphysik in Heidelberg and before Marie Curie fellow in DESY-Zeuthen
