Fields of Study: High Energy Physics
I am working in the Experimental High Energy Physics group where we search for the most fundamental particles in nature. My current research interests involve searches for dark matter and physics beyond the Standard Model. If we were to discover such phenomenon, it would have a profound impact on understanding the origins of matter, as well as improving our knowledge of the Universe. My research takes place primarily at the ATLAS detector, which is one of the experiments at the Large Hadron Collider or LHC.
