I am studying the properties of proton-proton interactionsat very high energies up to 13 TeV using the ATLAS detector situated at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. In particular I am interested in the properties of the Bose-Einsteinand Fermi-Dirac correlation as a function of energy and particle masses. The experimental work is supplement by me by my own phenomenological description on these phenomena. In additionI I am working on plans for
future electron-positron colliders, like CLIC and the ILC, in particular in relation to the production and measurement of the polarized incoming beams.
