Fields of research: Experimental elementary particle Physics.

I currently work in the Atlas experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), which collides protons at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV. With Technion students we contributed to the construction of the Atlas detector, the trigger which selects collisions with energetic muons, and muon reconstruction. We also led the data analysis searching for long-lived charged particles, such as the stau, the supersymmetric partner of the tau lepton. This hypothetic new particle would be a sign for physics beyond the standard model, but we did not find it yet.  I currently continue to search for the stau and additional long-lived particles at higher energies than before and also work on an upgrade of the detector.
