- Associate Professor
I am an experimental physicist who carries out research in the area of elementary particle physics, also referred as high-energy physics (HEP). I received my Ph.D. from University of Pennsylvania in 2003 working on the CDF II experiment at Fermilab. Afterwards I carried out my research work with the BaBar experiment at the SLAC National Accelerator Center as a postdoctoral associate at University of Maryland. I joined Iowa State University as an assistant professor in 2009. Currently my main research project is the ATLAS experiment, one of the two experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) of CERN that discovered the Higgs boson.
