Nominator's project description

Professor Schmaltz is well known internationally for his outstanding research in theoretical particle physics and particle cosmology. He has made seminal contributions to model building beyond the Standard Model of particle physics, in particular in the context of extra-dimensional models. During his research stay in Germany, he intends to extend his work on Dark Sectors and particle physics solutions to present cosmological tensions to identify new mechanisms and possibly new signatures from Dark Sector particles.
