Research Description

My research program lies at the interface of particle physics and cosmology. It incorporates early universe cosmology, beyond-Standard-Model model building, aspects of string phenomenology, and collider physics.

Some topics I have recently worked on include: the thermal history of the universe prior to Big Bang Nucleosynthesis, models of inflation and reheating in string cosmology/effective supergravity, Affleck-Dine baryogenesis, dark radiation and its relation to the thermal history of dark matter, astrophysical probes of dark matter candidates with feeble couplings to the Standard Model, and issues of moduli stabilization and decay.

I maintain an active program in collider physics. My recent interests pertain to the properties of the Higgs boson, in particular the trilinear coupling. I have worked extensively in supersymmetric model-building and signatures of SUSY models at colliders.

A full list of my publications is available on INSPIRE.
