Heintz studies the fundamental building blocks of matter. Their interactions are described by the standard model of elementary particle physics. Heintz is interested in testing the validity of this model at very high energies. Understanding the behaviour of matter at the highest energies is important to understand how our Universe evolved from the Big Bang to its current state. Heintz carries out his research as a member of the CMS Collaboration at CERN and the D0 Collaboration at Fermilab.
