Professor Qian focuses his research on the DØ experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron proton-antiproton collider and on the ATLAS experiment at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC). At both Tevatron and LHC colliders, protons or antiprotons of extreme high energies are brought to collide inside massive particle detectors constructed to record fragments and traces of the collisions. The data recorded enable us to study interactions between fundamental particles. Specifically, Professor Qian is engaged in searching for the experimental signatures of the standard model Higgs boson and supersymmetric particles.
