My research attempts to find answers to the following two questions:

bulletWhy is the universe predominantly made of matter (rather than equivalent amounts of matter and antimatter)?
bulletWhy does the expansion of the universe appear to be accelerating?

In order to answer these two fundamental open questions in physics, I work on two experiments: BaBar and SNAP. See Web Page for details.
