We combine ultrafast time-resolved THz spectroscopy and microscopic modeling to study the hot-carrier relaxation and cooling dynamics in graphene; we obtain quantitative agreement without the need to invoke disorder effects and demonstrate that the dynamics are the result of the intricate interplay between carrier-carrier and carrier-phonon interactions.
