  • About

    Professor Zhu is an experimental high energy physicist conducting his research at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (ATLAS experiment) and at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider (D0 experiment). These experiments were built to help scientists to address the most fundamental questions about matter and forces. In the ATLAS experiment, his main research activity is the search for new physics beyond the Standard Model and the upgrade for the forward muon spectrometer frontend electronics. In the D0 experiment, Professor Zhu performed several high precision electroweak and QCD measurements. He also led the group to upgrade and operate the silicon tracker trigger system.

    Professor Zhu is also the Principle Investigator for the UM-CERN summer REU (research experience for undergraduates) and HST (high school teachers) program.

    Professor Zhu received the DOE early career award, US ATLAS fellow, Alvin Tollestrup award for outstanding postdoctoral research at Fermilab from Universities Research Association and the Martin and Beate Block award from the Aspen Center for Physics.
