Background and Research Interests:
I am currently an Associate Professor in the C.N. Yang Insititute for Theoretical Physics at Stony Brook University. I joined the YITP in 2009 after having completed my PhD in high energy theoretical physics from Cornell University in 2006 and spending time as a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University and the Institute for Advanced Study. My research interests are focused mainly on physics beyond the Standard Model. I am interested in both phenomenological and theoretical aspects of new physics. Some recently investigated topics include Baryogenesis, Collider Physics, Dark Matter, Supersymmetry, and QCD resummation. In general, I am mostly interested in developing and applying Quantum Field Theory techniques to understand our universe.
The YITP has vibrant programs in both formal and phenomenological theory, and we have close connections to the Physics Department, Simons Center for Geometry and Physics, and Brookhaven National Laboratory. With the support of the YITP and SCGP we hosted a major LHC workhsop (SEARCH), that is part of a series of workhsops I have organized with Michele Papucci and Raman Sundrum.
My research has been supported by the NSF as co-PI of NSF grant PHY-0653354, and PI of the NSF CAREER award PHY-1056833.
YITP Postdocs and Students
The YITP is a large theory group and I have worked directly with several postdocs and students who have been part of the YITP, including some of whom I have supervised for their PhD. Contact me if you are interested in a position in our group.
