Professor Dev's main research goal is to establish a clear and coherent picture of the new physics beyond the Standard Model (SM) of particle physics.
While the standard model has been remarkably successful in providing a quantitative, quantum mechanical description of the strong, weak and electromagnetic interactions of the basic building blocks of nature, it cannot be the ultimate theory of our universe. In particular, it fails to explain the observed non-zero neutrino masses, matter-antimatter asymmetry and dark matter in the universe.
Dev’s research focuses on both theoretical and phenomenological aspects of the underlying new physics scenarios that could address these outstanding puzzles of our universe and also shed light on other theoretical or aesthetic limitations of the SM. Assuming that the scale of new physics might be within an experimentally accessible range, Dev is interested in exploring testable consequences in current and future experiments at the Energy, Intensity and Cosmic frontiers.
