COLLABORATING AT FERMILAB SINCE:
Construction and operation of DZero Level 2 and CTT trigger systems; one postdoc served as DZero Run Coordinator. Design and implementation of NOvA DAQ subsystems, detector controls, power distribution and monitoring systems; construction of NOvA near-detector prototype. Construction of HyperCP calorimeter; one professor served as HyperCP spokesman. Calibration of KTeV calorimeter; commissioning and operations of trigger and TRD systems. Observation of largest CP violation yet observed as well as first in a kinematic distribution in KL→ππee mode.
CP violation and neutrino mixing, electroweak and Higgs physics, QCD.
