Associate Professor of Physics

University of Washington


I am working on experimental particle physics using proton-proton collision data from the Large Hadron Collider as a member in the UW Elementary Particle Experiment Group. My research interests range from dark matter searches with the ATLAS experiment, neutrino cross-section measurement with the FASER experiment, and innovative Artificial Intelligence algorithms for data-intensive discovery. My team collaborates with Prof. Scott Hauck’s ACME Lab to work on the ATLAS Pixel operation, the ATLAS Inner Tracker Pixel upgrade, and accelerated machine learning with heterogeneous computing. In addition, I led physics outreach events to promote STEM education.

ASAML Project

Accelerated Machine Learning applied to fundamental science experiements

The FASER Experiment

FASER, the ForwArd Search ExpeRiment, is designed to search for new, yet undiscovered, light and weakly-interacting particles and study the interactions of high-energy neutrinos.

The Fast Machine Learning Lab

Real-time and accelerated ML for fundamental sciences

The ATLAS Experiment

ATLAS is one of the four major experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. It is a general-purpose particle physics experiment designed to exploit the full discovery potential and the huge range of physics opportunities that the LHC provides.
