My Areas of Research

Search for new physics beyond the standard model of elementary particle physics

The Higgs boson, which had been the last missing piece of the standard model (SM) of particle physics, was finally discovered in 2012 at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Europe. On the other hand, there are still many unknown things which cannot be explained by the SM, such as the nature of dark matter and dark energy. I have been exploring new physics beyond the SM through theoretical study on production and decay of the Higgs boson and dark matter at the LHC as well as at the International Linear Collider (ILC), which is planned to be constructed in Kitakami Mountains.

My Teaching Philosophy

I place great importance on curiosity. We welcome students who are willing to take on a challenge of elucidating the hidden laws of nature.
