Research Interests

My research has focused primarily on quantum field theory and particle physics phenomenology. My goal is to address some of the fundamental questions of particle physics: What is the source of electroweak symmetry breaking? Why are there different flavors of quarks and leptons? Why do they have different masses? To answer these questions I have worked on supersymmetry, particle cosmology, and precision electroweak tests of the standard model.
