Research Interests

My research interests lie in the branch of Theoretical Particle Physics and, in particular, in the areas of neutrino physics and physics beyond the standard model. Of special interest for the past decade has been the subject of quark, and more recently, charged lepton and neutrino mass matrices which can shed some light on the basic Yukawa mass-generating mechanism for the quarks and leptons. For this purpose, grand unified models based on SO(10) symmetry are being studied, in collaboration with S.M. Barr from Bartol Research Institute, which make use of a small number of Higgs representations.

Since retirement, all of this theoretical research has been carried out by the author as a User associated with the Theoretical Physics Department at the nearby Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, Illinois.
