Experimental High Energy Physics Researcher

 

Matthew is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with research expertise in experimental high energy physics. He works as a member of the ATLAS collaboration as part of the effort to discover physics beyond the standard model with experiments preformed at CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Geneva, Switzerland. He is also a researcher at the Institute for Research and Innovation in Software for High Energy Physics (IRIS-HEP). He previously did his Ph.D. (2019) research at Southern Methodist University, also on the ATLAS experiment, in searches for high momentum low mass resonances decaying to two b-quarks and produced in association with a jet.

Specialties:

  • Python, C++

  • Data Analysis

  • Particle Physics with focus on high momentum states
