My research interests are the precision measurements of the elements
of CKM matrix aimed for understanding the source of asymmetry and behavior between matter
and anti-matter including CP violation, testing the Standard Model, and discovering New Physics.
Experiments tell us that for every fundamental particle there exists an anti-particle.
The big bang is almost certainty produced particles and anti-particles in equal numbers.
However, our observations indicate that we live in a universe of matter, not anti-matter.
There must be some other undiscovered phenomenon that makes matter and anti-matter behave
differently. Its source may lie in the properties of the Higgs Boson, SUper-SYmmetry, Gravitons,
Extra Dimensions, Dark Matter, or New Particles.

Current and Previous Research Experiments
- The BELLE II experiment is located
at SuperKEKB, High Energy Accelerator Research Organization,
in Japan. The SuperKEKB project is our response to the challenge of solving Nature's fundamental puzzles
by upgrading the KEKB electron-positron collider and the Belle I detector.The KEKB collider has been a leader
in the race to provide the world's highest luminosity. The next target is 40 times greater than KEKB's record
by the upgrade to SuperKEKB and Belle II. The target luminosity is 8x1035 cm-2s-1 and this improvement allows
us to discover new physics beyond the Standard Model. The Super B Factory at SuperKEKB is an open international
project with unprecedented luminosity. The Belle II Collaboration consists of 600 physicists and engineers from more
than 95 institutions in 22 countries from all over the world. The primary goals of Belle II experiment are to investigate
New Physics by studying B mesons, D mesons, and tau leptons.
