I am interested in finding and analyzing theories of particle physics beyond the Standard Model. My current areas of active research include:
- Higgs Physics: exotic decays of the 125 GeV Higgs Boson, connections to baryogenesis, new channels to measure Higgs couplings.
- LHC Phenomenology (& beyond): exploring low-lying electroweak states that could hide in Standard Model Standard Candle measurements, collider physics & jet substructure, discovery potential at 100 TeV colliders.
- Dark Matter: theories yielding novel nuclear recoil spectra in direct detection experiments, bounds on light dark mediators from stellar astrophysics and early universe cosmology.
- Supersymmetric gauge theories: theories of dynamical SUSY breaking and metastability, dualities and nonperturbative results, and model building with a focus on gauge mediation, magnetic monopoles and applying Seiberg Witten methods to N=1 theories.
