Research

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.

Check out my ORCID webpage with selected publications and basic biographical information, and here you can find my Academic Tree.
