My research is centered on the ATLAS experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. My group is focused on searching exotic Beyond-the-Standard-Model particles such as top-antitop resonances and vector-like quarks. My group is also designing and building electronics for Micromegas detectors for the New Small Wheel upgrade of ATLAS. We are also developing firmware for the Liquid Argon Calorimeter trigger upgrade of ATLAS.
