Research interests

I am a theoretical particle physicist and I work on physics beyond the Standard Model, mostly in the context of dark matter, the matter-antimatter asymmetry of the universe and neutrinos. My recent work has focused on dark matter bound states, self-interacting dark matter, and asymmetric dark matter.
