This page was thrown together quickly to provide some info about what fkw is doing these days. As an aside, the page with info on the UCSD written exam is here.

Physics with CDF

The people active on CDF within the last year are:

  • Rami Vanguri (undergraduate)
  • Shih-Chieh Hsu (graduate student - accepted Chamberlain Fellowship to work on Atlas at Berkeley starting May 2008)
  • Matt Norman (graduate student)
  • Elliot Lipeles (post-doc, starting faculty job at UPenn on June 1st 2008)
  • Mark Neubauer (former post-doc. Faculty at UIUC since Fall 2007)
  • fkw (faculty)

Bottom line, the CDF effort is winding down. All that's left to do is finish off a couple analyses, and write papers for them.

Public CDF Results from UCSD

CMS

This is where the focus is going now. Within the years 2004-2007, our focus was primarily on CMS computing, while doing physics only on CDF, where there was data. As we get closer to LHC data taking this is changing.

The physics focus on CMS is to leanr about the detector by repeating the analysis we have done on data at CDF now in Monte Carlo at CMS. The objective is NOT to actually do a realistic analysis yet, but rather to learn what the main issues are in reconstruction, and start improving the CMS reconstruction software.

We work closely with Claudio Campagnari's group at UCSB, Avi Yagil's group at UCSD, and Lothar Bauerdick's group at FNAL.

CMS Computing

People active on CMS computing:

  • Bruce Thayre (undergraduate)
  • Rami Vanguri (undergraduate)
  • Toni Coarasa (Researcher)
  • James Letts (Researcher)
  • Terrence Martin (Computing Staff)
  • Haifeng Pi (Researcher)
  • Abhishek Rana (Computing Staff)
  • fkw (faculty)
