I am curious about what our world is made of at the smallest, most fundamental level.
I am a particle physicist, exploring the energy frontier, studying the laws of nature at
the highest energies together with my
MSU colleagues and collaborators from around the world on the
ATLAS experiment at
CERN near Geneva, Switzerland.
The CERN LHC is a proton-proton collider that is expected to discover new particles and
reveal physics at the electroweak symmetry breaking scale.
CMS found the Higgs
boson in 2012 and will continue to accumulate data at increasing collision energies.
I am excited for the
breakthroughs in the understanding of our world that should emerge. I work in the
top group on single top
quark production and in the
exotics group on
Z' searches in the dilepton final state.
Together with a team of very talented MSU students, we have produced a
planetarium show on the LHC and ATLAS,
running at the Abrams planetarium
at MSU and possibly coming to a planetarium near you.
I have been on the DØ experiment at the
Tevatron proton-antiproton collider
at Fermilab near Chicago, Illinois since 2000.
I was co-convener of the analysis group that
discovered single-top quark production.
You can read about the many subjects that I have investigated on my
DØ home page.
This I believe.
