I completed my Ph.D. in experimental particle physics at the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa under the direction of Prof. Conor Henderson in May 2019. My defended dissertation is publicly available on the CERN Document Server at CERN-THESIS-2018-263.
My researched focused on searching for evidence of extra spatial dimensions in the universe, namely, large extra dimensions, using the CMS detector at the Large Hadron Collider located at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. This is a search for new physics beyond the Standard Model of particle physics looking for new fundamental particles decaying to two photons. This was achieved by performing a statistical data analysis on a large data set and simulating the theory through the detector.
I’m interested in applications of these data analysis techniques to all different areas of industry from research and problem solving to product development and business analytics.
