Research

My current interests are in the areas of the phenomenology of quantum gravity and string theory. In addition, I am a collaborator of the ATLAS experiment at the CERN laboratory in Geneva. Within ATLAS I am active in the areas of searches for new phenomena beyond the standard model of particle physics and measurements of the Higgs particle self coupling. I have responsibilities and interests within the technical areas of Monte Carlo simulated sample production and grid computing.
