    Research interests

    The standard model of particle physics (SM) is a theoretical framework that describes fundamental interactions and constituents of matter and, although very successful in predicting phenomena, it be considered as a complete description of nature. Dark matter, for example, is not accounted for in the SM. In addition, in recent years experiments worldwide have reported tensions arising from anomalies observed in the decays of B mesons and in properties of leptons. Most of these tensions strongly point towards new interactions which treat, unlike the SM, leptons of different generations or flavors differently. Such kind of interactions are said to violate lepton flavor universality (LFUV) and might also be the link between ordinary and dark matter (DM). My research focuses exactly on this intersection of these topics, the search for the violation of letpon flavor universality and the search for dark matter candidates at the Belle / Belle II experiment (see for example here ).

    Currently I am involved in many activities at the Belle and Belle II Experiment including the following

    - coordination of the dark sector physics group of the Belle experiment,
    - search for low mass dark matter in invisible decays of the Y(1S),
    - search for a dark Z’ boson decaying to visible/invisible final states,
    - search for dark Higgs boson and dark photon,
    - search for lepton flavor universality violation in leptonic/hadronic tau decays.
    - measurement of Vus
    - absolute leptonic branching fractions determination of tau
    - lepton identification
    - Machine learning techniques

    Another aspect of my research is the involvement in the Belle II statistics advisory committee of which I am (co-)chair; the committee offers guidance and documentation (including training/tutorials) to promote sound usage of statistical tools and procedures within the Collaboration.

    My evolving research team is continuously looking for new members at various level, if you are interested in joining our effort in the search for dark matter and dark forces at the Belle II Experiment write me an email.

            The standard model of particle physics (SM) is a theoretical framework that describes fundamental interactions and constituents of matter and, although very successful in predicting phenomena, it be considered as a complete description of nature. Dark matter, for example, is not accounted for in the SM. In addition, in recent years experiments worldwide have reported tensions arising from anomalies observed in the decays of B mesons and in properties of leptons. Most of these tensions strongly point towards new interactions which treat, unlike the SM, leptons of different generations or flavors differently. Such kind of interactions are said to violate lepton flavor universality (LFUV) and might also be the link between ordinary and dark matter (DM). My research focuses exactly on this intersection of these topics, the search for the violation of letpon flavor universality and the search for dark matter candidates at the Belle / Belle II experiment (see for example here ).

            Currently I am involved in many activities at the Belle and Belle II Experiment including the following

            - coordination of the dark sector physics group of the Belle experiment,
            - search for low mass dark matter in invisible decays of the Y(1S),
            - search for a dark Z’ boson decaying to visible/invisible final states,
            - search for dark Higgs boson and dark photon,
            - search for lepton flavor universality violation in leptonic/hadronic tau decays.
            - measurement of Vus
            - absolute leptonic branching fractions determination of tau
            - lepton identification
            - Machine learning techniques

            Another aspect of my research is the involvement in the Belle II statistics advisory committee of which I am (co-)chair; the committee offers guidance and documentation (including training/tutorials) to promote sound usage of statistical tools and procedures within the Collaboration.

            My evolving research team is continuously looking for new members at various level, if you are interested in joining our effort in the search for dark matter and dark forces at the Belle II Experiment write me an email.

                    Research interests

                    The standard model of particle physics (SM) is a theoretical framework that describes fundamental interactions and constituents of matter and, although very successful in predicting phenomena, it be considered as a complete description of nature. Dark matter, for example, is not accounted for in the SM. In addition, in recent years experiments worldwide have reported tensions arising from anomalies observed in the decays of B mesons and in properties of leptons. Most of these tensions strongly point towards new interactions which treat, unlike the SM, leptons of different generations or flavors differently. Such kind of interactions are said to violate lepton flavor universality (LFUV) and might also be the link between ordinary and dark matter (DM). My research focuses exactly on this intersection of these topics, the search for the violation of letpon flavor universality and the search for dark matter candidates at the Belle / Belle II experiment (see for example here ).

                    Currently I am involved in many activities at the Belle and Belle II Experiment including the following

                    - coordination of the dark sector physics group of the Belle experiment,
                    - search for low mass dark matter in invisible decays of the Y(1S),
                    - search for a dark Z’ boson decaying to visible/invisible final states,
                    - search for dark Higgs boson and dark photon,
                    - search for lepton flavor universality violation in leptonic/hadronic tau decays.
                    - measurement of Vus
                    - absolute leptonic branching fractions determination of tau
                    - lepton identification
                    - Machine learning techniques

                    Another aspect of my research is the involvement in the Belle II statistics advisory committee of which I am (co-)chair; the committee offers guidance and documentation (including training/tutorials) to promote sound usage of statistical tools and procedures within the Collaboration.

                    My evolving research team is continuously looking for new members at various level, if you are interested in joining our effort in the search for dark matter and dark forces at the Belle II Experiment write me an email.

                          Research interests

                          The standard model of particle physics (SM) is a theoretical framework that describes fundamental interactions and constituents of matter and, although very successful in predicting phenomena, it be considered as a complete description of nature. Dark matter, for example, is not accounted for in the SM. In addition, in recent years experiments worldwide have reported tensions arising from anomalies observed in the decays of B mesons and in properties of leptons. Most of these tensions strongly point towards new interactions which treat, unlike the SM, leptons of different generations or flavors differently. Such kind of interactions are said to violate lepton flavor universality (LFUV) and might also be the link between ordinary and dark matter (DM). My research focuses exactly on this intersection of these topics, the search for the violation of letpon flavor universality and the search for dark matter candidates at the Belle / Belle II experiment (see for example here ).

                          Currently I am involved in many activities at the Belle and Belle II Experiment including the following

                          - coordination of the dark sector physics group of the Belle experiment,
                          - search for low mass dark matter in invisible decays of the Y(1S),
                          - search for a dark Z’ boson decaying to visible/invisible final states,
                          - search for dark Higgs boson and dark photon,
                          - search for lepton flavor universality violation in leptonic/hadronic tau decays.
                          - measurement of Vus
                          - absolute leptonic branching fractions determination of tau
                          - lepton identification
                          - Machine learning techniques

                          Another aspect of my research is the involvement in the Belle II statistics advisory committee of which I am (co-)chair; the committee offers guidance and documentation (including training/tutorials) to promote sound usage of statistical tools and procedures within the Collaboration.

                          My evolving research team is continuously looking for new members at various level, if you are interested in joining our effort in the search for dark matter and dark forces at the Belle II Experiment write me an email.

                              Research interests

                              The standard model of particle physics (SM) is a theoretical framework that describes fundamental interactions and constituents of matter and, although very successful in predicting phenomena, it be considered as a complete description of nature. Dark matter, for example, is not accounted for in the SM. In addition, in recent years experiments worldwide have reported tensions arising from anomalies observed in the decays of B mesons and in properties of leptons. Most of these tensions strongly point towards new interactions which treat, unlike the SM, leptons of different generations or flavors differently. Such kind of interactions are said to violate lepton flavor universality (LFUV) and might also be the link between ordinary and dark matter (DM). My research focuses exactly on this intersection of these topics, the search for the violation of letpon flavor universality and the search for dark matter candidates at the Belle / Belle II experiment (see for example here ).

                              Currently I am involved in many activities at the Belle and Belle II Experiment including the following

                              - coordination of the dark sector physics group of the Belle experiment,
                              - search for low mass dark matter in invisible decays of the Y(1S),
                              - search for a dark Z’ boson decaying to visible/invisible final states,
                              - search for dark Higgs boson and dark photon,
                              - search for lepton flavor universality violation in leptonic/hadronic tau decays.
                              - measurement of Vus
                              - absolute leptonic branching fractions determination of tau
                              - lepton identification
                              - Machine learning techniques

                              Another aspect of my research is the involvement in the Belle II statistics advisory committee of which I am (co-)chair; the committee offers guidance and documentation (including training/tutorials) to promote sound usage of statistical tools and procedures within the Collaboration.

                              My evolving research team is continuously looking for new members at various level, if you are interested in joining our effort in the search for dark matter and dark forces at the Belle II Experiment write me an email.
