BioI am a theoretical physicist interested in elementary particles and the fundamental interactions. My main research interests are:
* consequences of the "Standard Model of particle physics"
* precision study of the heaviest known elementary particles - the W and Z bosons, the top quark, and the Higgs boson - to search for clues to new fundamental interactions beyond the Standard Model
* models of such new interactions, especially models with composite or strongly interacting Higgs bosons
* models for the particle that composes the dark matter of the universe
I am the author of a leading theoretical textbook in this area, "An Introduction to Quantum Field Theory", with Daniel Schroeder. Recently, I have written another textbook that emphasizes our experimental knowledge, "Concepts of Elementary Particle Physics".
