I am working on two high energy physics experiments: CDF and ATLAS. On
CDF, I have
built parts of the endplug calorimeter, COT and central preradiator
(CPR) upgrades. I was
co-leader for the latter. On ATLAS, I have been involved in the
installation of the hadron calorimeter (Tilecal) and the minimum bias
32 ten-ton Tilecal modules were instrumented and tested at MSU before
On both CDF and ATLAS, I have been interested in QCD and Standard Model
was QCD co-convener for 4 years in CDF and currently am the North
Standard Model and Higgs co-convener as well as leading the effort for
W/Z + jets CSC (computer systems commissioning) note. I am working
towards Rediscovering the Standard Model at
the LHC first, in order that claims of any new
physics are believable.
Below is a picture of the ATLAS experiment at CERN.
If you want to keep track of the daily progress of the installation,

CTEQ: a collaboration of
experimentalists and phenomenologists of which I am co-spokesman. CTEQ
produces one of the two most widely used sets of parton distribution
functions in high energy physics as well as operating a yearly summer
school alternating between the US and Europe.
