Madeleine Dale was born in Leicester, UK in 1996. She read for an integrated master’s degree in theoretical physics at the University of Nottingham, for which her thesis concerned the CP-violation in models of neutrinos with non-Hermitian Dirac mass matrices. In the summer preceding her final year, she attended the DESY summer school. During this time, she completed a project in which she developed an algorithm to evaluate the Feynman’s path integrals of a quantum mechanical case study.
Madeleine’s doctoral project, in which she uses a first-principles approach to numerically calculate charged hadron masses and decay rates from quantum chromodynamics and quantum electrodynamics, expands upon her interest in statistical mechanics and quantum field theory. In her spare time, Madeleine enjoys playing the piano, flute and guitar, and learning languages.
Madeleine has been selected for the position of ESR12 with joint degree awarding institutions the Università di Roma “Tor Vergata” (UTOV), the University of Cyprus (UCY) and the Humboldt University of Berlin (HUB). The project entitled "Calculation of masses of charged hadrons and leptonic decay rates including QED" is supervised by Prof. Nazario Tantalo, Prof. Haris Panagopoulos Alexandrou and Prof. Caren Tischendorf.
