    Jet momentum broadening from the lattice
    The transverse momentum of a high-energy particle broadens in crossing a  strongly interacting medium. The transverse collision kernel, C(b),  quantifies that phenomenon and receives dominant infrared contributions which cannot be tackled perturbatively, although the coupling seems small. We calculated this contribution on the lattice in Electrostatic QCD as proposed by Caron-Huot and pioneered by Panero, Rummukainen, and Schäfer. Our continuum-extrapolated data, provided at four different temperatures, renders the common quadratic approximation of C(b) redundant.

    V-QCD and neutron stars
    In this talk, we consider a family of state-of-the-art holographic models called Veneziano-QCD, phenomenologically tuned to mimic QCD.These models are combined “continuously” with various ab-initio nuclear physics models used to describe low density nuclear matter, with V-QCD being used for high density nuclear matter as well as for quark matter. We examine the constraints from astrophysical observations on these hybrid equations of state and the implications on the structure of compact stars.

    Higgs Compositeness and Beyond the Standard Model Physics
    Appealing solutions to the hierarchy problem of the Standard Model involve assuming that the Higgs particle might be composite, and originates from new strong dynamics. This general scenario has a number of concrete possible realisations, and their study requires non-perturbative theoretical methods.  I illustrate a selection of three such possibilities, via examples of calculations  that use gauge-gravity dualities, lattice gauge theories and effective field theories, respectively.  

    Hopefully the up to 50 min + 10 min discussion long seminar/colloquium will be understandable to a wide audience.
