Research Topics

Antinuclei signatures of dark matter with GAPS

  • Leading the semiconducting Si detector development for the GAPS experiment, a balloon-borne dark matter search utilizing cosmic-ray antiprotons, antideuterons, and antihelium in an unprecedented low-energy range

Galactic center and dark matter physics with the NuSTAR X-ray satellite observatory

  • Investigating the Galactic Center region, in particular new insights on stellar remnant populations and cosmic-ray acceleration from inner-parsec to inner-kiloparsec scales.

  • Pursuing X-ray signatures of dark matter particle physics processes, in particular sterile neutrino decay.
