Research Interest:
My primary interest and activities are in flavor physics, that is theory and phenomenology of masses and mixings in both quark and lepton sector. The predictions of Standard Model and the signatures of new physics in rare decays of heavy quarks and in CP violation and mixing of heavy mesons is a an area of intense activity. The other long standing interest is the properties of neutrinos, and their impact via oscillations or masses in astrophysics, cosmology and proposals to disentagle them from the data. To find the "correct model" describing the fermion mass matrices is an outstanding and fascinating problem in particle physics.
