Felleskollokvium: Unravelling the Darkness of the Universe

Prof. Dr. Sergey V. Ketov
Tokyo Metropolitan University and Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe, The University of Tokyo, Japan.

The current status of the Dark Side of our Universe is reviewed, by focusing on cosmological inflation, dark matter and dark energy.

Both theoretical and experimental challenges of modern cosmology are discussed, as well as their links to high-energy physics of elementary particles, black holes, gravitational waves and string theory. The presentation is designed for a general physics audience.

Prof. Dr. Sergey Vladimirovich Ketov is a world expert in Quantum Field Theory, Gravitational Theory and String Theory, with the focus on Supersymmetry. He obtained his Master degree (1982) and PhD (1986) in Theoretical Physics after his studies and research at Tomsk State University and Lebedev Physical Institute in Moscow, USSR, under supervision of USSR Academician E.S.Fradkin.

He later worked at the Soviet Academy of Sciences and got his habilitation (1990) at Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics in Novosibirsk, USSR. In 1990, Dr. S.V. Ketov became a Visiting Professor of Physics at the University of Maryland in College Park, USA. In 1992 he became a member of “Akademischen Rat” (Assistant Professor) at the Institute for Theoretical Physics of the University of Hannover in Germany.

Since 2002, S.V. Ketov has been Associate Professor and Head of the Theoretical High Energy Physics Lab at Tokyo Metropolitan University. Since 2010, he has been a member of the Advanced Study Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe (Kavli IPMU) at the University of Tokyo in Japan. In 2013, Prof. S.V. Ketov was Visiting Scholar in Physics at Oslo University, Norway.
