CV: rev. Feb 2019

I am working on particle physics using proton-proton collision data from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) as a member in the UW Elementary Particle Experiment Group. My research area is to study fundamental building blocks of the universe and their interactions. I am one of the scientists who discovered the Higgs boson in 2012 and this discovery led to the Nobel Prize in Physics 2013. Since then, my research interests focus on Beyond the Standard Model search using innovative boosted hadronic W, Z and Higgs identification techniques with the ATLAS detector. My team collaborates with the UW ECE to work on the ATLAS Pixel operation, ATLAS Phase II Pixel upgrade, and fast machine learning inference in accelerated computing. Since 2018, I am leading the development of track reconstruction of the FASER, a proposed experiment dedicated to searching for light, extremely weakly-interacting particles at the LHC.

In each quarter, I also led physics outreach events to promote STEM education.
