Rebecca K. Leane





My research focuses on dark matter phenomenology, astroparticle physics and collider physics. I have a broad interest in physics beyond the Standard Model.

In general, I am interested in finding new ways to optimize the information that can be extracted from any potential detection of new physics, ranging from model building to proposing striking new physics signatures, across different phenomenological settings.

You can find me on inSPIRE, the arXiv, and Google Scholar.
