I am involved in the following research directions:

GasToF: ultra fast timing detector

GasToF (Gas Time-of-Flight) detector is a Cherenkov detector developed for very precise (with ~10 ps resolution) flight time measurements of very forward protons at the LHC. Such an excellent time resolution allows, using z-by-timing technique, for precise measurements of the event vertex z-coordinate and the background reduction. This detector is essential for selecting exclusive and semi-exclusive processes at the LHC, and can also be applied for the particle ID at future experiments.

External collaborators: CMS PPS project, M. Albrow (Fermilab), M. Khakzad (Tehran), J. Varela (Lisbon), and E. Schnys (Photonis) and J. Howorth (Photek Ltd).
