My research focuses on physics beyond the Standard Model, with an emphasis on the experimental predictions of new theoretical models.  I am broadly interested in the phenomenology of new physics at the Tevatron and the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).  I have worked on improved search strategies for new, heavy colored particles, as well as for a Higgs boson that decays to a light pseudoscalar.  These search strategies expand the sensitivity of the LHC to a wider variety of models of electroweak symmetry breaking, as well as a wider set of supersymmetric scenarios.  Most recently, my research has focused on the nature of dark matter.  I have studied composite dark matter and have considered the interesting experimental signals that arise when there are several states in the dark matter sector.
