Research Interests

My research interests are precision measurements of the elements of Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa (CKM) matrix aimed for understanding the source of asymmetry between matter and anti-matter, testing the Standard Model, and discovering New Physics. Experiments revealed that for every fundamental particle (matter) there exists an anti-particle (anti-matter). The big bang is almost certainty produced matter and anti-matter in equal numbers. However, observations indicate that we live in a universe of matter. There must be some other undiscovered phenomenon that makes matter and anti-matter behave differently. Its source may lie in the properties of Dark Matter, Dark Energy, Supersymmetry Particles, Gravitons, or Extra Dimensions.
