Grantee Professor John Bulava

John Bulava is Professor for Theoretical Hadron Physics at the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy at Ruhr University Bochum.

John Bulava studied physics and mathematics at George Washington University and Carnegie Mellon University in the USA. He completed his doctorate at the latter in 2009. He subsequently held several research positions at various European institutes, first at Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY) and then at CERN in Switzerland. In 2013, Bulava was appointed Assistant Professor at Trinity College Dublin in Ireland. In 2019, he moved to the University of Southern Denmark, first as assistant professor and later as associate professor.

His ERC project starts in 2024.

Understanding Particle Interactions in Neutron Stars

Neutron stars may be much heavier than predicted by theory. This is possibly due to hyperons, i.e. poorly understood elementary particles. John Bulava aims at reconciling theory and experiment with new simulations.
