Scientific Interest

My scientific work has concentrated on measurements of jets at hadron colliders to test QCD and search for new physics beyond the standard model.

I was a member of the CDF collaboration at the Fermilab Tevatron between 1985 and 2009. At CDF I made many measurements using jets and isolated photons, and I searched for quark compositeness and several models of new particles.

Since 2004 I have been mainly working on the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. At CMS I have led the commissioning of jets and their energy corrections, and conducted and published many searches for new particles and forces using final states with jets.

Since 1994 I have led the highest mass searches for two jet resonances at hadron colliders and this remains the primary focus of my research.
