I am looking at the phenomenology of the Standard Model and selected Beyond SM scenarios. Currently I am learning how to make accurate predictions for LHC experiments and how to develop search observables that allow to optimally discriminate between different models. Important aspects will be to exploit and improve data-driven estimation methods and to use kinematical characteristics of models to delineate the underlying physics. This should ultimately help to increase the discovery potential and sensitivity to new physics for search channels involving jets, leptons and missing transverse energy at the LHC.

I am looking at the phenomenology of the Standard Model at hadron colliders. Currently I am learning how to make accurate predictions for LHC experiments and how to develop search observables that allow to minimize statistical and theoretical uncertainties. I am mainly looking at the production of weak bosons with jets using MCFM as a tool to make predictions of the PDFs and scale uncertainties. This should ultimately help to increase the discovery potential and sensitivity to New Physics for search channels involving jets, leptons and missing transverse energy at the LHC.
