Research Interests:
Theoretical particle physics

My main research is in physics beyond the Standard Model (BSM). The BSM models are mainly designed for the purpose of explaining the nature of Dark Matter (DM) and the origin of neutrino mass and involve particle and symmetry extensions of the SM. I work on their possible signatures in colliders, direct and indirect DM signals. I am also interested in BSM physics signatures in extreme environments such as neutron stars (NS). My studies on possible new physics effects on NS structure and evolution involve a wide range of topics in particle & nuclear physics, astrophysics and general relativity.
