Dr Diederik Roest is assistant professor, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Theoretical High-Energy Physics/String Cosmology Group, University of Groningen.

Diederik (born in 1977) is interested in the mathematical properties of string theory, but enjoys testing abstract theory experimentally. For example, he is studying how string existence could be proved by observations at the largest distance scales, such as cosmic background radiation. Roest hopes that the Planck space observatory’s latest measurements will offer clues as to whether string theory actually does play a role in nature. Diederik Roest is passionate about explaining complex science to laypersons in order to build trust in research.

Roest, Dr. D. (Diederik)
  • Theoretical high-energy physics, particle physics, string theory, cosmology
