Joshuha Thomas-Wilsker's Homepage

Hello and welcome to my homepage. I am currently a PHD student in the particle physics group at Royal Holloway College, University Of London. My current research is in the search for the Higgs Boson at the ATLAS experiment at CERN. There are many working groups in the collaboration currently working towards the common goal of finding the Higgs Boson.

When looking for the Higgs lifetime, like most massive particles, it decays almost instantly and so cannot be observed directly. Instead we observe the particle through it's decay products which can be predicted accurately by the standard model. Each working group concentrates on an analysis based in one of these decay channels. The group I currently work in is called HSG5 which is the group responsible for the analysis which utilises the decay of the Higgs to a b-quark with an anti b-quark.

Until recently the aim was to uncover significant evidence for this particle but recent results with the ATLAS Detector at the LHC from both ATLAS and CMS have shown the observation of a new particle in the search for the standard model Higgs Boson. So the game has changed slightly and now it is less to do with finding out if it exists and more to do with the phenomenology of the particle.

I hope to update this page regularly as a log book of my work in HSG5 along with helpful hints and tips for both author and audience.
