Research Interests:

  • Theoretical Particle Physics and Astrophysics


Ph.D. 2007, University of Maryland

Current Research:

My research is focused on theoretical particle physics and its interface with cosmology and astrophysics. I work on new physics beyond the Standard Model with emphasis on dark matter and collider phenomenology. My recent research interests include the small scale structure of the Universe and alternatives to collisionless cold dark matter, dark matter searches at the Large Hadron Collider and data-driven model building.
