Research Abstract
I work on a broad range of topics in the elementary particle physics focusing on physics beyond the Standard Model. The upcoming experiments at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN are widely expected to discover new physical phenomena and shed light on origin of mass and origin of energy scales in particle physics. In my research I study phenomenological extensions of the Standard Model, problems of electroweak symmetry breaking and gauge hierarchy (hierarchy between scales of electroweak interactions and Grand Unified or gravitational interactions). This includes topics such as perturbative and non-perturbative dynamics of quantum field theories; supersymmetry and mechanisms of supersymmetry breaking; quantum field theories in more than 4 spacetime dimensions.
