Fundamental experimental research in High Energy Physics. The discovery of the Higgs particle at the ATLAS Experiment at the LHC (CERN) marked a victory of the Standard Model of Particle Physics. From now on the focus switched to understanding the Higgs properties and look for possible extension to the model.  I study potential deviations from the Standard Model, covering vast number of models: Extra Dimensions and mini Black Holes, Dark Matter, exotics Higgs modes, composed fermions or unusual signatures. Served as a member of the ATLAS publication committee and led the ATLAS Higgs Beyond the Standard Model and  the Exotics Physics groups.

In addition works on the development of particle and radiation detectors including the ATLAS muon trigger detectors and a novel plasma-panel-based technology detectors.

Particle Physics Department chair, member of the ATLAS experiment Executive Board.
