HEPHY, Vienna - Austria

I am a PhD student at the Institute of High Energy Physics (HEPHY) in Vienna and currently working on physics analysis for the CMS experiment at CERN. My research area is the search for supersymmetry especially in the hadronic channel in events with top quarks and MET, to which I contribute within the SUSY working group. In the analysis I use the CMS software framework (CMSSW), the Physics Analysis Tools (PAT), ROOT for histogramming and the languages C++ and Python. Furthermore, I help to build up and support the grid computing software environment and the physics data transfers at our Tier-2 centre in Vienna.
