My research is focused on extra dimensions, which provide a possible extension of the Standard Model (SM) of particle physics. Models of extra dimensions offer solutions to several important problems in particle physics, such as the gauge hierarchy problem, and the identity of the dark matter of the Universe. Such models could be experimentally investigated, for example, in the next generation of colliders, such as the CERN LHC.
