The CIE grant provided financial support to travel in May 2013 to Hamburg, Germany to visit DESY, the German Electron Synchrotron, one of the world's leading particle accelerators used to study the fundamental constituents of nature and their interactions. My local expenses were covered by a Collaborative Research Center (SFB) fellowship that I was awarded through SFB’s 676 "Particle, Strings and the Early Universe--The Structure of Matter and Space-Time" hosted by DESY and the University of Hamburg. Together these awards facilitated two months of visits and collaborations with theoretical physicists at DESY in 2013.
