  • About

    Professor Qian focuses his current research on the ATLAS experiment at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC). He led the ATLAS search of the Standard Model Higgs boson in one of its major decay modes and was a leading contributor to its subsequent discovery. His current physics interests include measurements of the properties of the newly discovered Higgs boson and searches for new physics beyond the Standard Model. For the latter, he is engaged in searches of experimental signatures expected from an extended Higgs sector as well as those from the production of dark matter particles at the LHC. Previously, Professor did his research with the DØ experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron proton-antiproton collider and with the L3 experiment at CERN’s Large Electron-Positron Collider.
