The focus of my research in high energy theory for many years has been in the area of electroweak interactions. I have especially been interested in the physics of heavy quarks and leptons, and in understanding the phenomenon of CP violation -- whether it arises from inside the Standard Model through a non-trivial phase in the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix describing the transformation from quark mass- to weak-eigenstates or from new physics that is associated with higher mass scales.
