Research & Teaching

The University of Buenos Aires (UBA) is a public, free university, founded in 1821. It is the largest university in Argentina (350000 students and 29000 staff) and consists of 13 Schools, 6 Hospitals, 10 Museums and is linked to 4 High Schools.

Within UBA, the College of Exact and Natural Sciences hosts the Physics Department, one of the most important Physics Research centers in Argentina with over 90 full time researchers that span a wide spectrum of experimental and theoretical topics among which the Experimental High Energy Physics group (HEP-EX).

Currently, the HEP-EX group at UBA is a member of the ATLAS Collaboration at CERN. We have experience with the understanding of how quarks and gluons evolve in showers of particles that arrive at the detector. These showers are called jets and they are present in most final states observed at ATLAS. The physics activities of this group focus on the precise measurement of Standard Model observables and the search for New Physics in final states including jets.
