I research interactions between matter and extremely strong electromagnetic fields that are found, for example, in high-intensity laser systems and around neutron stars. These fields are strong enough to create new matter according to E = mc². I study things such as the rate at which and the properties of matter and radiation produced in interactions with strong fields and whether they can be used to look for new elementary particles. Compared to interactions between a few particles at a time, strong-field interactions are a relatively unexplored aspect of our fundamental theories of physics. We therefore often need to use new methods and advanced mathematical tools and thereby learn more about the structure of our fundamental theories.
