Research Interests
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.

I am collaborating with two major international experiments: Belle II and BABAR Collaborations. The Belle II experiment is located at SuperKEKB, High Energy Accelerator Research Organization, in Tsukuba Japan. The SuperKEKB is the world's largest luminosity or rate of collisions accelerator facility. The main goal of Belle II experiment is to pursue the mystery of the disappearance of anti-matter during the early, developmental processes of the universe and to discover New Physics beyond the Standard Model. The Belle II Collaboration is an international research collaboration that consists of 650 researchers from 100 institutions in 23 countries. The BABAR experiment is located at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory at Stanford University. The BABAR Collaboration consists of approximately 600 physicists and engineers from 75 institutions in 13 countries.

    • The BABAR experiment is located at SLAC, National Accelerator Laboratory at Stanford University in USA.
      Previous Experiments
      • The CMS experiment at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. The main goals are to answer the basic questions those are related to a discovery of Higgs boson, supersymmetric particles, mini black holes, gravitons. Currently there are 3600 people working for CMS, 3000 of which are scientists and engineers. These people come from 183 institutes in 38 countries, spanning Europe, Asia, America, and Australia.
         
      • The Neutrino Factory and Muon Collider in conjunction mainly with Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab), Brookhaven National Laboratory, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, CERN, KEK, Science and Technology Facilities Council, and INFN. The primary goal of this research is to measure the physics parameters describing neutrino mixing, and in particular the prospects of observing and measuring CP violation in the lepton sector. This collaboration consists of 135 scientists and engineers.
