Angular asymmetries in ttW production
Pieter David, Andrea Giammanco, Vincent Lemaitre

We take advantage of the large statistics being recorded by the CMS experiment in Run 2 to launch a systematic study of angular asymmetries in the ttW process, which have a potentially large sensitivity to non-SM effects.
In synergy with the CP3 phenomenology group, we aim at reporting our results in a form that can be easily translated in EFT constraints.
CMS Tracker commissioning and performance assessment
Pieter David, Christophe Delaere, Martin Delcourt, Marco Musich, Jessica Prisciandaro, Alessia Saggio, Jo┼że Zobec

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.
