Research Interests and achievement
Updated on  August  3, 2014
I am interested in the Electroweak (EW) symmetry breaking mechanism, which is one of the most important subjects in particle physics today. I've been a member of the ATLAS collaboration of the LHC since 2007, and I've contributed to the di-boson (ZZ and WW) decay channels of the Higgs boson, which eventually led to the discovery of the new Higgs- like particle at the LHC in 2012. For the past two years I've been actively involved in the H ¡÷ WW* ¡÷ l£hl£h analysis group at ATLAS, making essential contributions to the measurement in the vector boson fusion (VBF) production channel. I am appointed as one of the editors for the main supporting note for the ATLAS Run-1 publication in H ¡÷ WW*, and I've been the co-coordinator of the VBF H ¡÷ WW* sub-group from October 2013. For the future, I am interested in exploring the Higgs boson properties in the VBF channel, and working with theorists to develop novel analysis techniques.
