Experimental High Energy Physics
I am interested in probing the structure of matter and the nature of its interactions at the very smallest scales, to understand the fundamental nature of our universe.
Specifically, I work with the CDF collaboration at the FermiLab Tevatron, currently the world's highest energy particle accelerator, to understand the nature of the top quark and probe for first signs of the Higgs boson.
In addition, I am a member of the ATLAS collaboration at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, which will open up a vast new energy frontier and may enable us to make discoveries which revolutionize our understanding of matter and its interactions.
