Education: 

Christian currently holds a B.A. in Physics and a B.S. in Mathematics awarded from the University of Chicago (2014).

Research Interests: 

Christian currently studies high-energy particle physics as a part of the ATLAS experiment, located at the Large Hadron Collider near Geneva, Switzerland. My main focus is on a search for new physics in the context of supersymmetry, specifically looking for the direct production of scalar top partners. I also contribute to the online data selection system for the experiment, focusing primarily on the jet trigger. My supervising Professor is Elliot Lipeles.
