LPC Distinguished Researcher


Nadja Strobbe


Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory

What I will be working on:

I will lead a new analysis, targeting new physics models, such as Stealth and RPV SUSY, featuring 2 top quarks, many jets, and no missing transverse momentum. The analysis will use advanced techniques such as top quark tagging, and will feature a data-driven estimate of the standard model backgrounds at high jet multiplicity. In addition, I will be working on the Phase2 upgrade of the Endcap Calorimeter, in particular studies for the ECON chip.

My role in CMS past and present:

Role in CMS past and present: I have been a member of CMS since 2010, and have developed extensive expertise in searches for new physics, in particular for top squarks. Most recently I co-led the LPC-based hadronic top squark analysis, and prior to that I worked on the razor boost analysis, and the search for top squarks in the single lepton final state. I was the co-convener of the SUSY MC subgroup in 2015. Since 2015, I have been heavily involved in the Phase1 upgrade of the hadron calorimeter. I have led the quality control of the readout electronics for the barrel, characterized about 45k QIE10 and QIE11 readout ASICs, and coordinated the 2017 test beam of the endcap and barrel readout electronics at the H2 beamline at CERN, as well as two radiation tests at the CERN CHARM facility.
