The Millennium Simulation

My research focuses on topics at the interface of particle physics and cosmology. I investigate astrophysical phenomena such as the gamma-ray signature of dark matter annihilations in our Galaxy, or the stochastic gravitational wave signal from the first stars to form in the universe. I also study the phenomenology of models of particle physics beyond the Standard Model. Specifically, I've been most interested in Supersymmetric extensions of the Standard Model, the particle dark matter candidates they contain, and how to discover the new physics at colliders and/or through identifying properties of dark matter particles.

For a full list of my publications, click here.

An excellent popular-level introduction to particle physics can be found in the Particle Adventure.

journal club

If you're interested in particle physics, you are welcome to stop by our joint High Energy / Cosmic Ray / Gamma Ray Journal Club. This is a brown bag meeting (bring your lunch) during which we talk about a few new and interesting results. Everyone is encouraged to bring something to talk about, but the meetings are very informal (for grad students who are not very far into research, it's okay if you don't understand everything!). Check out the Journal Club Web Page for details.
