Research interest(s)/area of expertise

My research focusses on studying the properties of elementary particles by analyzing data from high-energy particle colliders such as the ones at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. I am interested in expanding our scientific knowledge of effective field theories that let us understand the physics of low-energy interactions between particles in the absence of a cohesive complete theory of how nature works at extremely high energies.
