About Me

Sebastian Zajac earned his PhD in Physics at the University of Silesia in Katowice. He is currently a theoretical physicist, an assistant professor and an associate dean for infrastructure at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Studies, Cardinal Stefan Wyszynski University in Warsaw (Poland).
He is a American Physical Society member. The focus of his research is mathematical physics, statistics and data analysis, in particular phenomenology of neutrino physics and geometry, topology and Category Theory in Quantum Mechanics and Quantum Field Theory. His latest publications center around the flavour problem in the field of neutrino physics. With prof. Piotr Sulkowski they are trying to characterize RNA and protein structures by their topological characteristics called genus.

Events

  • Neutrino Oscillation Workshop, NOW 2018
    September 09-16, 2018, Rosa Marina (Ostuni), Italy

    NOW 2018 is the 10th workshop of a series started in 1998 in Amsterdam. The aim of the workshop is: to discuss Neutrino Oscillation Physics, in particular current experimental data and their theoretical interpretation; to outline future investigations of neutrino masses and mixings; and to explore the links with various research fields in Astroparticle Physics and Cosmology.

    Neutrino physics
  • Quantum fields, knots, and strings
    University of Warsaw,
    September 24-28, 2018, Warsaw, PL

    This conference is devoted to relations between quantum field theory and string theory one hand, and mathematical knot theory and random matrix models on the other hand. Surprising connections between these areas of research have been found in last years. In the conference we will summarize important recent developments in this context and try to set the goals for the future research. Topics considered in the conference include: supersymmetric gauge theories, BPS states, topological string theory, integrability, homological knot invariants, matrix models, topological recursion.

  • XII Latin American Symposium on High Energy Physics
    November, 26-30, 2018, San Mgiuel, Peru

    The Latin American Symposium of High Energy Physics (SILAFAE) congregates the Latin American particle physics community, with the aim of discussing our current knowledge and the future perspectives in particle and astroparticle physics, including topics such as gravitation and cosmology. This is achieved mainly through theoretical and experimental plenary talks, as well as parallel oral contributions and poster presentations.
