Research Interests

I am primarily interested in understanding what lies beyond the Standard Model of particle physics. I am currently interested in pursuing novel, low-energy searches for weakly-coupled particles (dilaton, moduli, axion and dark photon) that may make use of small-scale experimental techniques. The main goal is to device sensitive experiments with current technology and understand how and how much it can be improved in the future. I am also interested in the idea of string landscape and multiverse, and in particular their experimental implications.
