Biography

My full publication list can be found at https://inspirehep.net/author/profile/U.Egede.1. My h-index as taken from Inspire is 110. My most important publications are given below

  1. LHCb collaboration, Determination of the quark coupling strength |V ub | using baryonic decays, Nature Phys. 11 (2015) 743, arXiv:1504.01568. 97 citations. This paper arose from discussions with theorists in 2012. By developing new techniques for reconstruction of semileptonic decays and working in close collaboration with the leader of the associated Lattice QCD calculation a world leading measurement of |V ub | was made with completely different systematic effects compared to the existing ones.
  2. U. Egede, T. Hurth, J. Matias, M. Ramon, and W. Reece, On the new physics reach of the decay mode B 0 → K ∗0 ` + ` − , JHEP 11 (2008) 032, arXiv:0807.2589 220 citations. In collaboration with theorists from CERN and Barcelona, I led an effort on new methods for extracting Wilson Coefficients in the B 0 → K ∗0 μ + μ − decay. The paper was important to this area as it for the first time made a systematic evaluation of how to combine theoretical and experimental information in the most optimal way to further the understanding of how contributions to physics beyond the Standard Model might affect the decay.
  3. U. Egede, T. Hurth, J. Matias, M. Ramon, and W. Reece, New observables in the decay mode B 0 → K ∗0 ` + ` − , JHEP 10 (2010) 032, arXiv:1005.0571 122 citations. In this paper we identified analytically the symmetries in the angular distribution that are fundamental for any derivation of new observables in the decay. This also paved the way for any analysis that is unbinned in q2 such as the B + → K + μ + μ − analysis below.
  4. LHCb collaboration, Differential branching fraction and angular analysis of the decay B 0 → K ∗0 μ + μ − , JHEP 08 (2013), 131, arXiv:1304.6325 218 citations. The measurement of the angular B 0 → K ∗0 μ + μ − with the full dataset collected from the LHC in 2011 was a major milestone for the analysis of Flavour Changing Neutral Current decays. The paper was the first analysis to measure the zero crossing point in the forward-backward asymmetry and prepared the ground for precision measurements in this decay.
  5. LHCb collaboration, Measurement of the phase difference between short- and long-distance amplitudes in the B+→ K + μ + μ − decay, EPJ C77 (2017), 161, arXiv:1612.06764 30 citations. The potential signs for New Physics in electroweak penguin decays relies on an understanding of the QCD effects induced by charm loops. This paper is the first one to show that the effect in the B + → K + μ + μ − are minimal and that this can’t explain that the branching fraction is below the SM expectation in this decay.
