My research field is experimental particle physics, with focus on searches for new phenomena and the study of the electroweak symmetry breaking mechanism.  My program also includes development of trigger systems and silicon-based tracking detectors at hadron colliders. I have been developing the program at the CMS experiment (2015-today), after having been a member of the ATLAS (2008-2015) and CDF (2000-2011) collaborations. I currently serve as the head of the CMS department at Fermilab, the L3 manager for Electronics for the Outer Tracker WBS (HL-LHC CMS upgrade project), the scientific secretary of the Fermilab Physics Advisory Committee, and the co-convener of the energy frontier working group at the laboratory.
