I am a theoretical particle physicist focusing on models of dark matter and physics beyond the Standard Model. I am interested in the many ways in which we may probe new physics, including the use of colliders, underground experiments, astrophysics, nuclear physics, and cosmology.
Current Students: Adam Green (undergrad), Syris Norelli (undergrad)
Contact me () if you are interested in working with me. I am looking for graduate students with a background in quantum field theory and undergraduate students with an interest in particle physics and either an advanced physics background (particle physics, field theory) or a strong programming background (ideally Python).
The particle theory group of the University of California, Riverside Department of Astronony & Physics. Our work focuses on the theoretical interface between high-energy physics, dark matter, and astrophysics.
The SoCal DM Network (UCSD, UCLA, UCI, UCR) focuses on exploiting new the capabilities in numerical modeling of baryonic feedback on structure for constraining and probing ideas on dark sector physics, and then pulling in new observations and new calculations of dark matter particle physics in the early universe and in stars and compact objects.
