I am an Associate Professor of Physics at Southern Methodist
University. I teach physics and conduct research at the
energy frontier (the ATLAS
Experiment). My top priority presently and for many years to come is the
ATLAS Experiment and investigations at the "Energy Frontier" of particle physics.
I co-convened the ATLAS Higgs Subgroup 6: Beyond-the-Standard
Model Higgs Physics from 2012-2013. Among my accomplishments, I have contributed to the measurement of the
spin-parity of the Higgs Boson and have pushed the limits of searches for additional Higgs
Bosons in nature, both through intellectual leadership and direct involvement in several
searches. In the past, I was active in the "Intensity Frontier" of my field through
Experiment. I led the team that discovered the ground state of the bottomonium system in 2008
and contributed to several other measurements and searches, including the observation of
CP violation in the B meson system and the observation of the rare decay B+→τν,
I became an Assistant Professor at SMU in 2009 and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2015.
I held post-doctoral positions at MIT and The Ohio State University. I earned my Ph.D. in physics from the
University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2004, and prior to that my B.S. in physics from Yale University in 1998.
