    Research interests

    The focus of my work are the Belle and Belle II experiments at the Japanese research lab KEK. In Belle I am leading the physics group for semileptonic and leptonic B meson decays, which deals with the determination of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix elements |Vcb| and |Vub| but also with (semi-) tauonic decays. In Belle II I am leading the collaboration for the design and construction of the silicon strip detector of the experiment.
