Although the elementary particle physics is currently understood based on a gauge theory of quarks and leptons called the Standard Model, a more fundamental theory is needed to describe physics laws in the domain with much smaller distance or much higher energy. My main research interest is to clarify theoretically how we can explore physics beyond the Standard Model such as the supersymmetic theory through various physics processes like Higgs boson production and decays, B meson decays, and muon rare decays.
