Dr Pankaj Sharma

Position:

Dr. Sharma is a research associate at the Center of Excellence for Particle Physics at the Terascale (CoEPP) in department of physics. The Centre aims to bring together both theoretical and experimental physicists to discover answers to some of the fundamental questions in physics that have until now been unanswerable.

Dr. Sharma is a theorist whose expertise is on the theoretical aspects of non-standard Higgs and top quark in proton-proton collisions at the large hadron collider (LHC) and polarized electron-positron collisions at the international linear collider (ILC).

Current Research Interests:

1. Beyond the Standard Model phenomenology at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), International Linear Collider (ILC) and Compact Linear Collider (CLIC),
2. Characterization of (non-)standard Higgs bosons at various colliders,
3. CP violation in various fundamental interactions,
4. Polarization/spin measurement of top quark and other fundamental particles at the hadron colliders,
5. Role of beam polarization at ILC and CLIC,
