Research Interest

My research interests include particle physics, cosmology and astroparticle physics. In particular, it focuses on understanding the nature of dark matter. On the particle physics front, my research aims to maximize the potential of the LHC and future colliders to search for physics beyond the standard model; in the early universe, to study new possibilities for dark matter model building and their novel cosmology histories; on the astroparticle physics front, to use galaxies and stars as laboratories for fundamental physics.
