Research Interests

Phenomenology and Model building of Physics beyond the Standard Model of Particle Physics
The only missing particle in the Standard Model is the Higgs boson. Our best chance of finding it is at the LHC,
the large hadron collider being built at CERN, Geneva, Switzerland. I am interested in novel signatures to help
discover the Higgs boson and when discovered to understand all its properties.
We can only formulate a consistent theory including a Higgs boson in the framework of supersymmetry. I also
work extensively on model building and phenomenology of supersymmetry.
