I am a member of the ATLAS experiment, one of the two major general purpose experiments of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The LHC is the world's largest and highest-energy particle collide and most complex experimental facility ever build.

My research field lies in the top-quark and Higgs boson sectors and probing beyond the Standard Model (SM) physics processes at hadron colliders. During my PhD research, I studied the properties of the top-quark, the heaviest elementary particle of the Standard Model, via probing the anomalous couplings in the top-quark decay vertex Wtb.

As a postdoc fellow at York University ATLAS group, I am also participating in the R&D for the LHC upgrade program, which includes major performance upgrades of the accelerator for the high-luminosity phase (HL-LHC) which requires replacement of several major detector components. In this regard, the entire tracking system of the ATLAS detector will be replaced during the LHC Phase II shutdown (foreseen to take place around 2025) by an all-silicon detector called the ITk (Inner Tracker), where our group is in collaboration with many other Canadian and international institutes and organizations to achieve this goal.
