The Standard Model has been extremely successful in explaining numerous experimental observations in the energy regime up to a few hundred GeV. There are, however, many hints encouraging us to go beyond the Standard Model. We still have to answer several fundamental questions such as how EW symmetry is broken and if there is a Higgs boson, why a fundamental scalar in the theory is naturally at EW scale, what the dark matter is made of, and why the neutrinos have such small masses.

These questions motivate my research. With the LHC coming online soon, it will open great opportunities to explore physics at the TeV scale. My research has been focusing on LHC phenomenology, especially signatures from new physics beyond the Standard Model.
