Former member
PhD student in CP3 from October 2009 to December 2014
Main Subject
I'm working on particle identification with ionization energy loss and its application to searches for stable massive particles with the CMS detector at the LHC.
I am involved in the following research directions:

CMS Tracker commissioning and performance assessment

The CMS silicon strip tracker is the largest device of its type ever built. There are 24244 single-sided micro-strip sensors covering an active area of 198m2.
Physics performance of the detector are being constantly assessed and optimized as new data comes.
Members of UCL are playing a major role in the understanding of the silicon strip tracker and in the maintenance and development of the local reconstruction code.

External collaborators: CMS tracker collaboration.
