ASC Intern for summer & fall 2010.

school: Northeastern University, Boston MA

class: 2012

mentor: Sergei Chekanov


I am working on developing a method to search for new massive particles predicted by theories beyond the Standard Model. We will attempt to use jet-shapes to identify signatures of any generic neutral particle with mass on the order of TeV? .

I have been involved in developing an algorithm for defining several jet-shape variables, and using these variables in Monte-Carlo truth studies (predictions based on well-established theory) to see how we can use these variables to distinguish between interesting 'signal' jets and uninteresting 'background QCD' jets.

A public release of this program is available here: .
