I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Laboratory for Elementary Particle Physics at Cornell University. I am stationed at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), working on the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) Experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Since starting at Cornell at the end of 2008, I have been working on the online software for the CMS Pixel Detector with Prof. Anders Ryd. With Prof. Ryd and Prof. Julia Thom, I am also pursuing searches for physics beyond the Standard Model.
A full list of my journal publications is available via INSPIRE:
I received my PhD from Stanford University in 2008, where I worked on the BaBar Experiment at SLAC under the supervision of Prof. Aaron Roodman. At BaBar, I studied decays of B mesons through so-called penguin decays. These decays are interesting because they are rare, and thus small effects from physics beyond the Standard Model might be detectable.
