Research Interests

My research interests are in the study of the fundamental constituents of matter. Theoretical investigations are carried out within the Standard Model -- the theory of strong, weak and electromagnetic interactions -- as well as its extensions. Issues addressed include: unification of the four forces of nature, stability of the proton, neutrino masses, supersymmetry and its spontaneous breakdown, CP violation, and the cosmological implications of new particle physics phenomena.
