I have research opportunites for undergraduate physics majors in Fall quarter 2018.

Research:

My research is in experimental particle physics, where we are striving to understand the fundamental constituents and interactions of matter. I am working on the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment, which measures properties of the standard model interactions and searches for physics beyond it. My focus is on searches for supersymmetry, searches for new long-lived particles, and the design of a MIP timing detector (MTD) upgrade for the experiment. The MTD uses a LYSO + silicon photomultiplier (SiPM) based detector in the central (barrel) region, and a low-gain avalanche detector (LGAD) based detector in the end cap region.

Teaching:

I am currently (Winter 2016) teaching Phys104.
