Research

I'm a postdoc at Harvard University working on the ATLAS Experiment at CERN. My main research interest is searching for physics Beyond the Standard Model primarily in the form of Supersymmetry. My recent work has focused on experimental signatures of BSM physics that could have evaded a decade of LHC searches. These include signatures from new particles with macroscopic lifetimes and all-hadronic final states, among others. I am particularly interested in solutions to the naturalness problem in the Higgs sector.

I also have a strong interest in the foundations of quantum mechanics under the Bell-school.

Outreach

I've created a new project called ColliderScope where music is created such that the waveforms form images of the LHC when piped into a two-channel oscilloscope in XY mode. See cern.ch/ColliderScope for more information.

Together with colleagues, I used to produce a podcast about physics called In Particular. With thousands of listeners, we try to reach the lay audience to portray the lives of physicists in the ATLAS collaboration.

I also started a series of video shorts each focusing on a small topic from high energy physics. These shows can be found at cern.ch/InParticular, iTunes, and YouTube.

Music

In addition to producing all of the music heard in the In Particular family of programs, I am a saxophone player specializing in jazz and, more recently, blues. You can find me performing with the Geneva-based blues band Three Hours Past Midnight as part of the Atomic Horns and with various other groups in the greater Geneva area.
