Research Areas

Theoretical high energy physics: Flavor physics (B, D and kaon), neutrino physics, leptogenesis,  LHC physics

Current Research

My research is in the field of high energy physics phenomenology. My
interests span a wide range of topics in phenomenology: model building, astroparticle physics, neutrinos and collider phenomenology. My main focus is on interpreting experimental data and suggesting new analyses to be done with running and near future experiments. This is the reason that in recent years, I mainly worked on B physics and
neutrino physics. In the next few years, I expect to continue to work
on topics closely related to experiments. That is, beside B and
neutrino physics, I see myself involved in topics related to the LHC.

    Tarek Anous, a formerundergraduate student, who worked at the Wilson Lab with Professor Rich Galik on instrumentation for the International Linear Collider (ILC). The ILC is a proposed next-generation particle accelerator with a target date of 2015 to begin operation. Tarek helped construct a small detector that uses cosmic rays in order to simulate the real detector that will be used in the ILC. Cosmic rays hit the scintillator (a plastic rod) and produce photons whose signals ... read more
