I am working on theoretical particle physics and cosmology. My main research topics are:
(1) inflation and reheating,
(2) physics beyond the Standard Model,
(3) dark matter and its detection.

Research Content

The ultimate goal of my research is to find a unified theory that describes the evolution of the universe from primordial inflation to the present epoch. For that purpose, I have been working on theoretical developments of the early universe physics and beyond-the-Standard-Model physics, and their implications for terrestrial experiments and astronomical observations.
Recently I am interested in condensed matter physics and its application to novel methods of dark matter detection. I am excited with working as a member of QUP to approach this issue.
