Theoretical High Energy Physics
Despite the tremendous success in describing nature, the Standard Model is not complete. Thus, SM must be extended to find the true theory of nature, and it is imperative to understand and test these new theories.
Dr. Thapa's interests are in theoretical/phenomenological high energy physics. The past and current research include (a) neutrino physics, (b) flavor physics, (c) Higgs physics, (d) dark matter, (e) baryogenesis, and (f) grand unification. The emphasis is on model building as well as the implications of the new physics for ongoing and future experiments.
