Brief CV

Survey of Research Interests
  • Search for new phenomena:
    • Data-driven background estimate in events involving high energetic jets and large amount of Etmiss
    • Model-independent searches in lepton+jets+Etmiss final states (supersymmetry, leptoquarks with $\beta$>0, Universal Extra Dimensions) using W/Z+jets events
    • Monojet searches and test of Large Extra Dimension models (ADD scenario)
    • Model-independent searches for new physics in Dijet+Etmiss final states (e.g. supersymmetry non-Msugra, leptoquark $\beta$=0, littlest Higgs models)
  • Standard Model Physics:
    • Higher order perturbative QCD corrections in W/Z+jets events
    • Dependence of physics predictions on the choice of renormalization and factorization scales
    • Jets performance in W/Z+jets events
    • Soft QCD effects via the study of the kinematic of electroweak massive vector bosons
  • Phenomenological studies:
    • Toplogical characterization of new physics (eg OSET)
    • Large Extra Dimension scenario with supersymmetry in the bulk (SLED)
    • Dimensioless coupling to extra dimensional (bulk) scalars
    • Universal Extra Dimension scenario embeded in Large Extra Dimensions
