Research Summary

My work addresses open questions in the fields of high energy particle physics and cosmology. Most notably I have endeavored to understand the origin matter / antimatter asymmetry of the universe using the techniques of quantum field theory, particle physics, and statistical mechanics.  Additionally, I continue to study the nature of dark matter; the mechanism of cosmological inflation; the origin, evolution, and detection of primordial magnetic fields; the power of future collider experiments to probe Higgs physics and the complementarity with gravitational wave interferometry as a probe of the electroweak epoch; and the extent to which astrophysical observations can be used to search for and uncover relics from the early universe.
