Welcome to my home page!
I am a Professor in the Department of Physics & Astronomy at Rutgers University and a member of the New High Energy Theory Center (NHETC). My primary research focus is theoretical particle physics: understanding the nature of the Universe at the most fundamental level.
Currently I am working on applications of machine learning and artificial intelligence to data from both colliders and astronomy. This will help us better understand long-standing questions in fundamental physics, such as “what is the dark matter?” and “where is the new physics?”
In the past I have also worked on a diverse array of topics, from string theory and quantum gravity to model building and phenomenology.
