I am involved in the following research direction:

Observability of a minimal extension of the scalar sectror: 2HDM at the LHC

The goal of this work is to explore the phenomenology of a two Higgs doublet model with a custodial symmetry. It provides topologies that are unusual in the models usually considered in the literature. Notably, it opens the possibility of having an inverted mass spectrum with respect to MSSM with the lightest Higges being a pseudo-scalar and an heavier triplet of charged and neutral higgses.

External collaborators: Simon de Visscher (Zurich university).
