Teaching activities

  • Fall 2018: PHYS 1444-002
  • Past Classes
  • Research activities.

    I am working on Intensity Frontier experiments, specifically DUNE, ICARUS, and SBND experiments at Fermilab and advanced detector development for future experiments and medical usage. In addition to the precision mesurements of neutrin oscillation properties, I am interested in search for the dark matter whcih could be produced in the high intensity proton interactions in the target. For this reason, I have founded and am co-leading the DUNE Beyond the Standard Model (BSM) physics subgroup.

    I have contributed to Higgs search and discovery as well as its property measurements in its WW final states in ATLAS.   Development of highly efficient e-gamma algorithm and distributed analysis system for the ATLAS experiment were part of my primary interest in searching for the Higgs particle and am working on utilizing the Distributed Organization for Scientific and Academic Research (DOSAR) grid.  I also have actively worked on development of the advanced digital hadron calorimeter for the International Linear Collider (ILC) and other experiment using the Gas Electron Multiplier (GEM) technology and the possible broader use of GEM. I have played a leadership role for linear collider beam test activities, as can be seen a few reference links below.

    I have been a member of the CALICE Collaboration in GEM based digital hadron calorimeter and was the first chair of the CALICE Technical Board.

    I am involved in High Performance Computing Across Texas, HiPCAT, activities as well.  Here is the link to an in-person meeting held at UTA.
