Beyond the Standard Model phenomenology

The LHC experiments have verified the Higgs mechanism and the existence of the associated scalar particle, and established the Standard Model (SM) as the correct low energy description of strong and electroweak interactions. Yet we know that this cannot be the full story: There is no particle candidate in SM which would explain the observed dark matter abundance, and there is no viable mechanism to explain the observed matter-antimatter asymmetry. The hierarchical flavor patterns of the matter fields remain unexplained in SM which also does not provide a particle theory context for the inflationary paradigm. The research carried out in the group encompasses all these different research problems.
