CMS Physics Analysis
Telephone: +41 2276 71661
The search for supersymmetry with the CMS experiment is at the core of my research interests. Since the start of the LHC physics project several searches for supersymmetry have been conducted and published in the context of HEPHY's CMS physics analysis project. From mid-2016 to mid-2018 I have been co-convening one of the corresponding physics group of the CMS collaboration. With the start of LHC's second run these searches are entering into a new, exciting stage.
My second research interest is centered on track and vertex reconstruction in complex events like the ones produced in collisions at the LHC. In close collaboration with HEPHY's algorithm and software development group I have developed important parts of the CMS track reconstruction code. Related to this activity I have also coordinated the CMS group in charge with the identification of b-quark jets.
From September 2018 to August 2020 I was one of the two CMS physics coordinators with the responsibility to define and implement the physics programme of the collaboration.
