Current projects: High mass di-lepton search, WW and WZ resonance search, A SUSY particle search, HEP detector R&D

Research Description: Prof. Oh’s research utilized the CDF and ATLAS experiments. Using CDF data he is presently searching for high mass resonances and SUSY particles. For the resonance search, he is looking at the decay channels involving lepton pairs, WW or WZ pairs. The candidates for these resonances could be Z', a gauge boson similar to Z, W’ and Graviton. For a SUSY particle search, the search is conducted using events with W, Z and large missing transverse momentum. The LHC is expected to deliver proton-proton collisions in 2009, and he will continue similar studies including the Higgs search using ATLAS data. For the ATLAS experiment, he was responsible for constructing a major part of the inner detector called the TRT (Transition Radiation Tracker – see http://atlas.phy.duke.edu)
