The framework of the standard model and cosmology is demonstrating notable success in explaining nature. It is, however, clear that this is not the ultimate theory to explain everything. An obvious reason is this framework fails to explain the origin of the (dark) matter in the Universe.

My research aim is investigating the ultimate theory by studying closely the nature of the (dark) matter. In particular, I am now intensively studying the collider physics for efficient discovery/measurement of dark matter. I am also very interested in cosmic- ray signatures as a probe of dark matter. We will be getting deeper insights into dark matter for the next ten years, thanks to these observations.

I am excited that I will be working together with Kavli IPMUers at this crucial time.
