In January 2012, I joined as a postdoc in the HEP neutrino group at Argonne National Laboratory. I received my Ph.D. degree in experimental High Energy Physics from University of Hawaii at Manoa. My dissertation work is in the Belle collaboration, a B factory experiment located at the High Energy Accelerator Research Organization (KEK), Tsukuba, Japan. This experiment is involved in the study of the origin of CP violation (matter-antimatter asymmetries) in B meson system and searches for physics beyond standard model (SM). I have analyzed the large amount of data collected with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetic-energy e+e- collider. Specifically, I worked on the precise test of SM using golden charmonium mode B0 → ψ' KS0 and seach for new physics using the rare radiative mode B → φ K γ.   (details on my research work)
