LPC Distinguished Researcher


Hongxuan Liu

What I will be working on:

I will continue my work on searches for new physics in the all-hadronic channel. My primary focus will be improvement of the all-hadronic direct stop search and new searches covering the compressed spectrum. In addition, I will continue my work on the Combined Forward Calorimeter for the HCAL PhaseII upgrade.

My role in CMS past and present:

I joined CMS in March 2010. In 2010-2012, I contributed to the HCAL release validation. In 2012, I coordinated the MET scanners' team to monitor and identify the anomalous MET events in data and validate various filters to remove them. Throughout my years in CMS, I have been working on the inclusive all-hadronic SUSY search with multiple jets and MET. In 2013, I have been leading the all-hadronic cut-and-count direct stop search.
