Luis Anchordoqui's main area of research involves phenomenology of elementary particles, with applications to high energy astrophysics, cosmology, and collider physics. Very recently, he has studied some phenomenological aspects of D-brane string compactifications with low string scale and large extra dimensions, related to experimental searches for physics beyond the standard model at the Large Hadron Collider.

He is a member of the Pierre Auger Collaboration and therefore his research in high energy astrophysics is mostly related to this experiment.

Biographical Sketch:

Luis Anchordoqui received his B.Sc. in Physics in 1995 and a Ph.D. in Physics in 1998 from University of La Plata (Argentina). He was an associate research scientist at Northeastern University from 1999-2006. Since 2006, Anchordoqui has been at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee where he holds the rank of Associate Professor.

Anchordoqui has been an active participant in studies aimed at understanding the physics capabilities of the Pierre Auger (cosmic ray) Observatory. He is a founding member of the Auger Collaboration. His research is currently supported by the US National Science Foundation (NSF) under CAREER Grant PHY-1053663 and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Grant 11-APRA11-0058.
