I am currently interested in exploring particle phenomenology in two main areas. The first is in devising novel analyses at the LHC or future colliders to search for beyond the (or interesting ‘within the’) standard model physics. The second is the effort to directly detect dark matter, where in particular I have been thinking about designing new small-scale experiments with low energy thresholds. I am also interested in uncovering – and putting to use – new mathematical structures in quantum field theory. Conformal representation theory, commutative algebra, and cohomology have proven important in organizing the way we think about realworld effective QFTs. Standard model scattering amplitudes harbour hidden symmetries. I am interested in developing these ideas further.
