Research Description

I am interested in the research into the Grand Unified Theories (GUT) through the "forbidden" decay of muon, ƒÊ¨eƒÁ. This decay is sensitive to physics at very high energy, such as GUT and the see-saw mechanism which explains the tiny neutrino mass and the origin of matter in the Universe. I am working on the MEG II experiment, which searches for this decay with the highest sensitivity, at Paul Scherrer Institute in Switzerland. I am in charge of the computing and software system of the experiment and operation and analysis of one of the main detectors, pixelated Timing Counter. I am also working on designing a new future experiment.
