My research interest is in experimental particle physics (also known as high energy physics). I am a member of the CMS collaboration, which is an international group that is operating at experiment at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider. I have been studying ways in which the top quark is produced for some time, starting with earlier work I did with the D0 collaboration at Fermilab. Now that the Higgs boson has been found, I am looking at ways in which the Higgs particle interacts with the top quark.
