Research interests

Theory and phenomenology of physics beyond the Standard Model, with neutrino masses and dark matter as the starting point:

  • Neutrino mass models and their phenomenological implications  in the LHC (either detecting the new particles directly or indirectly, with processes like H->gamma gamma) and in low-energy experiments (LFV or 0vbb, for instance).
  • Dark matter direct detection, in particular, focusing on the annual modulation signal and the bounds one can set for it in terms of the constant rate, analysing the compatibility of the different experimental results.
  • Effective Theory approach to lepton number violation (and to neutrino masses), and its connection to baryon number violation.
