Monte Carlo event generators are computer programs that simulate the complex structure of particle beam collisions at high energies. They are critical components of data analysis, and are used to relate the observed data to theoretical models. I am one of the primary authors of the Pythia event generator. I develop this and similar tools as part of my research as a particle theorist and as a member of the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider.
