    I am a physicist working at the D0 experiment at Fermilab and the CMS experiment at CERN. I am studying the properties of the top quark and contributing to the CMS pixel upgrade. I served as co-convener of the D0 TOP physics group during 2001-2003, and of the D0 SINGLE TOP physics group during 2007-2010. In addition, I contributed to the D0 Layer 0 silicon detector, and to the CMS Silicon Outer Tracker Barrel detector. During Run1, I was convener of the D0 QCDWZ physics group and coordinated the testing effort of the D0 Silicon Microstrip Tracker.

    Fall 2018 teaching: on leave while serving as coordinator of the LHC Physics Center at Fermilab
