My research interests are in the area of astroparticle physics. My primary motivation in this field is to contribute toward our understanding of some of the unresolved mysteries of the Standard Model of particle physics: the origin of neutrino masses, the nature of dark matter, and the mechanism of matter-antimatter asymmetry in the universe. The main focus of my research program is to find new ways to constrain physics beyond the Standard Model using various astronomical observations. Some areas I have worked on include particle physics, cosmology, physics beyond the Standard Model, dark matter and cosmological simulations.
