I am a particle physicist working in the CMS experiment at the LHC. I am interested in discovering signatures of new heavy particles that could explain dark matter, and in precision studies of the top quark, the heaviest elementary particle. I also worked on the DØ experiment at the Tevatron from 2002 to 2014, where I was involved in discovering and studying single top quark production.

Some recent results with 13 TeV CMS data from my group:

  • Search for SUSY with αT at 13 TeV (35.9 fb-1, Submitted to JHEP, February 2018) CMS-PAS-SUS-16-038
  • Differential top quark pair production cross sections in lepton + jets final states (2.3 fb-1) CMS-PAS-TOP-16-008
