My Research :

  • The efficient identification of jets from bottom quarks (b-jets) is one of the~most important techniques for many physics analyses at the Large Hadron Collider, including studies of the Higgs boson, the top quark, and searches beyond the Standard Model. The performance is characterized by b-tagging efficiency (probability to identify a b-jet as such) and the mistag rate (probability to mistakenly accept a non-b-jet). So, mistag rate calibration has been a very important task for LHC as well. Currently I am developing a completely "new method" for light jet calibrations with the ATLAS detector of LHC.                                                                                                                                                                                             
  • As a Research Aide at the 'High Energy Physics Center for Computational Excellence' (HEP-CCE) of Argonne National Laboratory and I am worked on the feasibility of using Deep Neural Network(DNN) in HEP problems, specifically for 'object classification', 'event recognition' with the ATLAS detector data. I have completed the project of Object recognition at Argonne National lab in Summer 2017 and currently working on more complicated problems. More details can be found here.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          
  •  I am about to start working as 'ANL-ATLAS Graduate Fellow 2017' of Argonne National Laboratory where I will be working one year for a "High Luminocity-LHC" upgrade project on 'ITK Pixel' using the testbeam at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory .                                                                   
  •  I have been involved in a short project 'Secondary Vertex recontsruction using IP-RNN in ATLAS' at Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) during my visit at SLAC / Stanford University in May, 2017.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
  • And as an Intern at CERN in the ALICE experiment, I worked in Accelerator Physics in 2015. Apart from studying on accelerator physics and I also developed some tools for outreach activities of 'Accelerator Physics' to people of different age groups. I also created a CERN twiki page regarding that.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               
  •  As a Masters student in India, I worked  on : 'Future Neutrino Oscillation Experiments' for my master's thesis. Where we did some calculations of 3 flavor neutrino oscillation in matter and in free space and we studied the future prospects of 23 Neutrino oscillation experiments which were about to start or just started at that time.
