I have been working on D0 experiment at the Tevatron collider (Fermilab, Chicago) and the CMS experiment at LHC (CERN, switzerland).
Convener JetMET Trigger sub-group at CMSI led the JetMETtrigger sub-group which is responsible for co-ordinating trigger efforts for jets and missing energy triggers.
Convener D0 Top Quark groupI led top quark group at D0 in 2010-1011. We mnaged to published more papers than any other year in the history of D0 top group.
Convener D0 Jet Energy Scale groupI led the jet energy scale group at D0 from 2008 to 2010. Under my leadership, jet energy scale provided D0 collaboration jet energy calibrations with remarkably small uncertainties of 1.5-3%.
Central Track TriggerI played a leading role in central track trigger RunII upgrade, commissioning and operations.
Central Fiber TrackerI was a also a part of the commissioning effort for the central fiber tracker
Captain Shift CrewTaking captain shifts has also been part of my D0 experience.
Analysis review board memberI was a member of the editorial board for top quark properties for two years
I have been a viatl part of the single top quark at D0 and have played important role in all the analyses involving single top quarks. I led one of the analyses that found the first evidence for the standard-model-like single top quarks in Dec. 2006 at D0 and was part of the team that finally discovered single top production in march 2009. For discovery analysis I was also in charge of evaluation of systematic uncertainties for the cross-section measurement. I also did a search for beyond the standard model anomalous Wtb couplings in single top production.
Working on these analyses, I have immensely enjoyed exploring new data analysis techniques like neural networks , Bayesian neural networks , decision trees , and random forest .
