Biography

Hi there! I am a theoretical physicist working on phenomenological aspects of particle physics. My research interests cover model building aspects, based on string phenomenology and otherwise, as well as collider phenomenology.

Recently, I am especially interested in machine learning and data-driven methods applied to particle physics, both at a collider and model building levels. This has allowed me to explore many exciting aspects of particle physics, which I hadn’t had the opportunity to study in the early stages of my research career.

I also have industry experience as a machine learning engineer and data scientist, and I have a passion for game design and development, which I follow as a hobby.
