I am involved in the following research direction:


Create a code to create automatically HELAS routine in various format from the Feynman Rules.

Graviton phenomenology at the LHC

To study graviton production through multi-jet final state processes at hadron colliders taking into account the following models: ADD, RS and a massless graviton model.

External collaborators: Qiang Li (Paul Scherrer Institut - PSI, Switzerland) and prof. Kaoru Hagiwara (KEK Theory Center and Sokendai, Japan).

Top quark phenomenology

Top pair and single-top production is investigated, both for SM measurements and BSM searches.
