What I will be working on:

I am interested in the search for beyond the Standard Model (BSM) physics with dark matter candidiates. In Run II, my focus will be on events with lepton jets which could be reconstructed as dark matter resonance. These events provide power for direct detection of potential dark matter mediator -- dark photon, and probe large phase in dark photon mass, SM coupling constant parameter space. My service project involves sensor beam testing for CMS Pixel Phase2 upgrade.

My role in CMS past and present:

I began working with CMS in 2014 as a CERN summer student and in 2015 at University of California, Riverside. I have contributed to CMS Phase1 FPix module testing and calibrations, Pixel commissioning in 2017, and Pixel FEDs monitoring. I will contribute to sensor testing for Pixel Phase2 upgrade.
