SELECTED RESEARCH ACCOMPLISHMENTS

  1. New Physics: pioneered search for supersymmetric particles in top quark decays using the D0 detector at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory.
  2. New Detector: proposed a new Intermediate Barrel Tile Calorimeter for the ATLAS experiment at CERN (European Center for Research in Particle Physics), which is being built at UTA in collaboration with Argonne National Laboratory, Michigan State University, University of Illinois and the University of Chicago.
  3. Planning for the Future: led effort to motivate high luminosity Fermilab upgrade from the viewpoint of supersymmetry discovery, through the TeV2000 and TeV33 groups and at the Snowmass workshop.
  4. Beyond the Standard Model: pioneered search for dilepton supersymmetry signatures at D0.
  5. Calorimeter Technology: leading role in the design, construction and operation of the innovative Inter-cryostat detector for the D0 experiment.
  6. Software Development: wrote and maintained the D0 calorimeter ENDTSK calibration analysis package.
  7. Detector Calibration: designed and implemented a novel high density (800 channel) ultraviolet laser calibration system for scintillator counters, used in D0.
  8. New Detector Technology: proposed and successfully tested the first use of scintillator inside a liquid argon calorimeter, at the D0 Test Beam.
  9. Advances in QCD: observed the first signal from the production of Cc particles in Fermilab Experiment E672.
  10. QCD phenomenology: studied strange particle hadronization in the neutrino beam experiment E745 at Fermilab (thesis topic).
  11. Trigger Technology: designed, built and operated two trigger hodoscopes for my thesis experiment E745 at Fermilab (also used for LVD tests at Gran Sasso).
