Research interests

I have broad interests, having worked on effective theories in lattice gauge theory, beyond the standard model phenomenology, and on more theoretical issues in particle physics. Currently, I am concentrating my work on the physics of baryogenesis, and on recent developments in the study of scattering amplitudes in quantum field theories.

Teaching

  • Classical electrodynamics: lecturer/course organiser
