Discovering the Mysteries of the Universe

I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Physics and Space Sciences Department at the Florida Institute of Technology. I am working in the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider or also known as the LHC, the most powerful particle accelerator in the world. CMS is one of the two biggest detectors in the LHC where we discovered the Higgs boson in 2012. I have been analyzing the millions of collisions collected with the CMS detector and developing tools to identify subatomic particles originating from possible exotic particles never seen before. My research focuses in the search for new physics beyond the standard model of particle physics such as Supersymmetry or Extradimensions.
