About Us

We are an experimental high energy physics research group in the physics department at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. We currently work on the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. Our current projects include:
- Searches for new physics using Higgs bosons and top quarks
- The trigger processor for the New Small Wheel upgrade (NSW)
- R & D for muon readout and trigger board for muon drift tube chambers (MDTs)

Annual US high-energy physics visit to members of Congress | March 26, 2017
Martinez Outschoorn and Khader go to Washignton, DC on the annual USLUA visit to members of the Congress and to the Department of Energy. Each spring, a delegation of physicists representing High Energy Physics travels to Washington, DC to speak with Congressional members about the research being carried out in our field, thanking them for their past support, and asking for their support in the future. #HEPtakesthehill
