My research activities relate to the dark matter problem within a particle physics perspective. My theoretical work focuses on dark matter model building in connection with the problem of generation of neutrino masses and/or of the visible matter. My phenomenological research focuses on various aspects of dark matter detection (direct, indirect and at collider), with a particular attention to the statistical approach.

I am a high energy physicist and collider theorist. My primary research focuses on understanding the origin of tiny, nonzero neutrino masses and tests of neutrino mass models (Seesaw models) at collider experiments, such as the Large Hadron Collider. This includes extended gauge sectors (LR-Symmetric, GUT models), scalar sectors (SU(2)L doublets and triplets), and fermionic sectors (SU(2)L singlets and triplets). I have a particular interest in collider signatures involving initial-state electroweak vector bosons (vector boson fusion/scattering) and the impact of (resummed) QCD corrections on (new physics) collider processes. This includes resummation in the context of perturbative QCD and SCET.

Experimentalist in the realm of the CMS experiment at LHC, Geneva. I am studying processes involving single top quarks which provide direct probes of electroweak interactions. The second (2015-2018) operational period of LHC, with an expected luminosity of at least four times greater than its first round, will boost the sensitivity of the associated production of single top quarks with Higgs bosons. Such a process offers a stringent test for the SM predictions and serves as an excellent opportunity for identifying departures from this standard picture. Also, I am performing studies within fast detector simulations, i.e. in the context of CMS FastSim.
