Current Research Activities
My work is focused in the study of physics beyond the Standard Model of Particle Physics. The models I am working with propose a solution to the hierarchy problem and a candidate for Dark Matter, which existence is suggested by Astronomical Observations. My main interest is to study possible signatures of these models in Collider and Dark Matter experiments.

Current professionCurrent professional activities type:ResearchTeachingI am teaching Introduction to High Energy Physics and Introduction to Quantum Field Theory for undergraduate students of Physics. My research is focused on beyond the Standard Model of particle physics. In particular I study the phenomenology of models that can explain the existence of Dark Matter, and also collider signatures of new physics in colliders.
