Alexandre Obertelli

Principal Investigator, WA Representative

Alexandre Obertelli (Representative of WA1) works on understanding bound nuclear systems and the in-medium interactions among their constituents. He designs and carries experimental programs with radioactive beams at CERN, GSI/FAIR and RIKEN. The investigation of nuclei away from stability provides essential information to understand the link between interactions and nuclear-structure phenomena.

He initiated and has been developing new instruments for high-resolution tracking (MINOS ERC, 2010) and experiments with antiprotons (PUMA ERC, 2018). He investigates new experimental approaches to produced and study hypernuclei, very short-lived bound baryonic systems containing strangeness, which tell us more about exotic nuclear matter. Since 2018, he is Alexander von Humboldt Professor at TU Darmstadt.
