I am currently a graduate student studying high energy experimental physics. My work focuses on searches exotic new particles at the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC). I am also involved in the High-Level Trigger (HLT) system on CMS which is responsible for selecting which collisions are interesting enough to record for later analysis. I have also worked on the precision measurement of the WZ cross section at CMS.
