Current position: Permanent at University of Sussex (UK).
Past projects
Hide past projects.

I am involved in the following research direction:

Collider signatures of a low scale gravity

Study of the potential effects (such as black hole production) of a low scale gravity at the LHC.

Modifications of the Higgs sector

We study modifications of the Higgs sector which involve Higgs bosons with anomalous scaling dimensions and/or hidden sectors.

Phenomenology of Quantum Gravity

We study the renormalization of the Planck mass including quantum gravity effects and study potential experimental tests.
