My research is in the field of experimental elementary particle physics, which explores the fundamental constituents of matter and their interactions. I work on the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the CERN laboratory in Geneva, Switzerland. The LHC represents the Energy Frontier of particle physics by providing very high energy proton-proton collisions, which are recorded and analyzed to study fundamental interactions. My current effort is focused on searches for evidence of physics beyond the standard model of particle physics motivated by a potential new symmetry of nature known as supersymmetry, which may help explain such fundamental questions as the nature of dark matter and the origin of electroweak symmetry breaking. My group is also active in research and development for future upgrades of the CMS detector with a focus on very high-speed electronics to select and record the most interesting particle collision events.
