LPC Distinguished Researcher


Sridhara Dasu


University of Wiconsin, Madison

What I will be working on:

Sridhara will work with LPC residents on the CMS Level-1 trigger development for Run-3 and HL-LHC. Of particular interest is in investigating machine learning techniques for triggering. The test stands for the development of the HL-LHC trigger systems at UW-Madison, FNAL and CERN will provide access to APx-trigger boards. Sridhara will also work to build a future collider community to develop a simulations program.
