Student Talks for University of Michigan National Research Abroad Program at CERN
    • 2:00 PM 2:20 PM
      Preliminary Remarks 20m
      Speakers: Jean Krisch (University of Michigan), Steven Goldfarb (University of Michigan (US)), Thomas Andrew Schwarz (University of Michigan (US))
    • 2:20 PM 2:35 PM
      Electroweak Calibration of the Higgs Characterization Model 15m
      I will present the preliminary results of histogram fits using the Higgs Combine histogram fitting package. These fits can be used to estimate the effects of electroweak contributions to the p p -> H mu+ mu- Higgs production channel and calibrate Beyond Standard Model (BSM) simulations which ignore these effects. I will emphasize my findings' significance in the context of other research here at CERN and in the broader world of high energy physics.
      Speaker: Samuel James Greydanus (University of Michigan (US))
    • 2:35 PM 2:50 PM
      ECAL Energy Flow Calibration 15m
      My talk will be covering my work as a whole over the course of the semester. The focus will be on using energy flow calibration in ECAL to check the precision of the corrections made by the light monitoring system used to account for transparency loss within ECAL crystals due to radiation damage over time.
      Speaker: Zachary Paul Wimpee (University of Notre Dame (US))
    • 2:50 PM 3:05 PM
      Research with the HGamma group for ATLAS 15m
      Speaker: Chiara Pancaldo Salemi (University of Michigan (US))
    • 3:05 PM 3:20 PM
      Further Research with HGamma Group 15m
      Speaker: Rebecca Helen Peterson-Hall (University of Michigan (US))
    • 3:20 PM 3:35 PM
      ABC130 Total Ionizing Dose Irradiation Campaign 15m
      Concerns TID testing of the ABC130 read-out ASIC for the ATLAS Semiconductor Tracker. Includes recent results of low temperature and low dose rate tests.
      Speaker: Nicholas Patrick Quirk (University of Michigan (US))
