My group research interests are at the intersection of astrophysics, particle physics and cosmology. Our main goal is to extract as much information as possible about what our Universe is made of by considering how astrophysical systems would be affected with the addition of new, undiscovered particles and interactions. A major focus of our research is understanding the composition and behavior of dark matter, but we are also interested in other extensions of the Standard Model. While primarily theorists, we do occasionally get into the data when it is available.
Check out this video from the McGill Space Institute graduate open house in 2021, which gives a general flavour for the kind of research the group is doing!
