Areas of Focus: BSM



I received my bachelors, masters and Ph.D in physics from U.C. Berkeley and began working for Fermilab in 1989.

My scientific work has concentrated on measurements of jets at hadron colliders to test QCD and search for new physics beyond the standard model.

I was a member of the CDF collaboration at the Fermilab Tevatron between 1985 and 2009. At CDF I made many measurements using jets and isolated photons, and I searched for quark compositeness and several models of new particles.

Since 2004 I have been mainly working on the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. At CMS I have led the commissioning of jets and their energy corrections, and conducted and published many searches for new particles and forces using final states with jets.

Since 1994 I have led the highest mass searches for dijet resonances at hadron colliders and this remains the primary focus of my research.
