Assistant Professor, David S. Saxon Presidential Term Chair in Physics
Theoretical Elementary Particle Physics
Office: 4-923 PAB
I am an assistant professor at the Department of Physics and Astronomy at UCLA, and a member of the Bhuamik Institute for Theoretical Physics.
As a theoretical particle physicist, I use the tools of quantum field theory, such as effective field theory, to explore a broad range of phenomena including the physics of dark matter, cosmological large scale structure, quantum chromodynamics, and gravitational waves.
Before joining UCLA, I was a McCone Fellow at Caltech, and a postdoctoral scholar at the Berkeley Center for Theoretical Physics. I received my PhD in Physics from the University of Chicago, and undergraduate degree from the University of the Philippines.
