I am a theoretical particle physicist. My work is closely related to the physics done at particle colliders like the LHC. My research interests include beyond the Standard Model theories, motivated to answer many questions about our universe, e.g. What is dark matter? Why is there more matter than antimatter in the universe? Why do neutrinos have mass? The Standard Model of elementary particles cannot explain these phenomena. So, I study beyond-the-Standard-Model models.
