Måns Henningson, new Head of Department of Fundamental Physics
Since February 1, Department of Fundamental Physics has a new Head of Department, Professor Måns Henningson.
Prof. Måns Henningson acceded as Head of Fundamental Physics on February 1, taking over after Professor Bengt E. W. Nilsson. Måns has for half of his academic career been involved in the department where he has shown a strong dedication to his research, and to the development of Fundamental Physics.
When I met Måns, he spoke positively about an exciting future for Fundamental Physics, where several actions will come about to benefit the department. Måns also points out the importance of belongingness among the 25 co-workers that he actively promotes by regular lunch gatherings.
Måns commitment implies three years, which he plans to use to the department’s advantage for a flourishing future.
Professor in theoretical physics
Since the middle of the nineties, Måns’ research has mostly been concerned with various formal aspects of Yang-Mills quantum field theories. Such theories, which can be seen as a kind of non-linear generalization of Maxwell’s theory of electromagnetism, constitute the basis of our understanding of all interactions between elementary particles.
