  • About

    Professer 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 D0 experiment, Professor Zhu performed several high precision measurements to understand the production and properties of the electroweak bosons. He also worked on the Higgs boson search and QCD measurement with two photons in the final state. He also led the group to upgrade and operate the silicon tracker trigger system. In the ATLAS experiment, his main research activity is the search for new physics beyond the Standard Model and the upgrade of the muon spectrometer.
    Professor Zhu received the 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.
