Research and Teaching Interests
I conduct research in experimental subatomic physics and am involved with the international collaborations Belle II and MOLLER. My current focus is on searches for dark matter and dark sectors using high-energy matter-antimatter collisions as well as precision tests of the Standard Model. I am also interested in the development of new technologies for subatomic particle detectors.

I am currently accepting students. Contact me to inquire about undergraduate, MSc, or PhD research topics.
The Belle II experiment is located at the SuperKEKB asymmetric electron-positron collider in Tsukuba, Japan. SuperKEKB is the world’s highest luminosity (proportional to collision rate) particle collider. The image on the top right shows one of the many millions of matter-antimatter collisions that has been recorded by the Belle II detector (pictured on the top left).
My research with Belle II includes:
- Dark sector searches.
- Precision cross section measurements.
- Development of novel algorithms for high energy photon and neutral hadron reconstruction.
- Development of new technologies for crystal calorimetry.
