Research Interests

I work on experimental collider experiments, in particular the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider. My research focuses on searching for signs of new physics, beyond what is currently known and encapsulated in the Standard Model. Additionally, I am working on the design and construction of a new calorimeter for the next upgrade of the CMS experiment ahead of the High Luminosity LHC. This calorimeter will be able to take 3D images with excellent timing resolution, and will enable us to reconstruct particle showers with a precision that is unprecedented. Specifically, my group is developing readout electronics that take data from silicon sensors, concentrate it, and send it to the off-detector electronics for further processing.
