The CDF experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron

The Tevatron is a 1.96TeV proton-antiproton collider located at the the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia Illinois. The Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF) is one of two experiments built to study the high energy collisions produced by the Tevatron.

My research program at CDF focuses on searches for the Higgs boson. The Higgs boson is a particle predicted by the Standard Model of particle physics as part of the Higgs mechanism, which explains the large difference in the probability of weak and electromagnetic interactions and the origin of mass. See our latest result, a large exclusion of Higgs boson masses. I also study Electroweak diboson production, rare B meson decays, and work on silicon tracking software.
