Study of rare decays at the NA62 experiment

Advisor: Michal Kovaľ (IPNP MFF CUNI)

Funding: Fully funded


The ongoing experimnet at CERN, the NA62 focuses on the rare decays of kaons. PhD student will be studied a selected process of the kaon or pion decay. Part of the work will be a comparison of data with Monte Carlo simulations. The doctoral student will also participate in the technical work associated with the STRAW subdetector.
