My work focuses on various of aspects of phenomenology of elementary particle physics. I have been working on supersymmetry with a focus on electroweak symmetry breaking. More recently, I also worked on a broader range of new scenarios of physics beyond Standard Model, as well as their potential signals at the Tevatron and the Large Hadron Collider. I have also worked on: models of supersymmetry breaking; rare B decays in connection with SUSY flavor models; cosmic ray in connection with identity of Cold Dark Matter.
