My research is focused in new physics beyond that of the Standard Model of elementary particles. I am interested in both theoretical and phenomenological aspects and my research is promoting a synergy that goes from collider experiments all the way to cosmological and astrophysical implications of new physics. Currently, my main focus is in finding a first principles explanation to simultaneously address the lepton magnetic and B-physics anomalies, together with neutrino masses and dark matter. On the collider side, I am interested in scalar leptoquarks and vector-like fermions due to their tantalizing relevance to address the flavour anomalies and neutrino properties. Another research direction I am recently involved aims at exploring the possibility of an ultralight dark matter component in the Universe. Such particles can have rather relevant astrophysical consequences such as forming clumps known as bosonic stars. For a complete list of publications see my Inspire HEP profile in this link
