RESEARCH TOPICS

My main area of interest is the so-called Physics Beyond the Standard Model. I have worked on several projects incorporating specific topics such as: model building and Higgs phenomenology in the context of extra dimensions, models of flavor in extra dimensions, Gauge – Higgs unification, models of neutrino masses based on discrete symmetries, models of flavor in the context of extra dimensions, phenomenology and model building of supersymmetric models. Models of dynamical electroweak symmetry breaking, models for dark matter, etc.
