Short CV

Stefan Pokorski was born in Mlotkowice, Poland. 1964 he was awarded his Master of Science in Physics at the University of Warsaw. He received his Ph.D. degree and his Habilitaton (Doctor of Science) in Physics also from the University of Warsaw in 1967 and 1971. Since 1978 he works as a Professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Warsaw. Furthermore, from 1984 to 1993 Pokorski was Director of the Institute for Theoretical Physics at the University of Warsaw and since 1989 he is Head of the Chair for Theory of Particles and Elementary Interactions. He had long-term research appointments with CERN Geneva, the University of Geneva, Fermi National Laboratory Batavia and the Max Planck Institute Munich.

Research Interests

Theoretical physics of elementary interactions and its interface with cosmology. Primary interest in physics beyond the Standard Model, with its challanging questions such as the origin of the electroweak symmetry breaking and of the Fermi scale, the origin of dark matter and of the matter antimatter asymmetry.
