Johannes Albrecht studied physics at the University of Heidelberg and Sydney. In 2009, he received his doctorate in physics from the University of Heidelberg and moved afterwards for a three-year research stay to CERN as senior fellow. In 2013, he moved with an Emmy-Noether group to TU Dortmund University, where he was 2016 awarded an ERC Starting Grant. Since 2020, he is Heisenberg Professor at TU Dortmund University. His research is based at CERNs LHCb’s experiment with a focus on novel analysis techniques, rare leptonic beauty decays and the development of trigger algorithms.
