My group is searching for new physics beyond the Standard Model to address big questions remained after the Higgs discovery. The big questions include existence of extra dimension, the ultimate mechanism of electroweak symmetry breaking, the quest of large energy scale difference between the Planck scale and the electroweak scale.
Students will learn hadron collider physics, Monte Carlo simulation, statistical analysis and computing skills – C++ and Linux.
PHYS 226 or equivalent knowledge. C++/Linux skill is preferable.
