Yang Institute for Theoretical Physics, Stony Brook University

About Me:

I am a Ph.D. candidate at the Yang Institute for Theoretical Physics (YITP) at Stony Brook working with Prof. Patrick Meade. Starting this Fall, I'll be working at Brookhaven National Lab with Sally Dawson as part of the DOE SCGSR Program. I did my undergraduate work at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, where I graduated in 2015 with a B.S. in Physics and a B.S. in Mathematics.

I'm interested in quantum field theory and its application to physics beyond the standard model (BSM). In particular, I focus on phenomenological and theoretical aspects of BSM physics, including electroweak physics, dark matter, supersymmetry, baryogenesis, and their signatures at the LHC and other colliders.

Some more information about me is available in my CV.

Starting this year, I'm also helping organize the journal club for pheno students in the YITP. See here for details and a list of forthcoming papers and topics we'll discuss. First and second year students interested in particle physics are encouraged to attend!
