Research Project

Data Analysis with the CMS Experiment at the LHC

The purpose of this research project is to analyze a data sample of Higgs boson decays to look for the rare decay of the Higgs into a pair of muons. In addition we look for other postulated particles which have dimuon signatures. I will be integrated into a small group in which we will study the performance of new algorithms that will be implemented into an upgrade trigger system. These new algorithms will provide higher resolution of momenta of muons.
