RESEARCH SUMMARY

My past research was focused on an investigation on finding out an asymmetry that exists in decays of specific mesons because of interference contributed by Cabibbo Favored and Suppressed channels of the decays. Details are compiled in my Research letter.

HIGH ENERGY ACCELERATOR RESEARCH ORGANIZATION (KEK), JAPAN                 (2002 – 2009/2010)

Research Work

  • Worked extensively on finding out an asymmetry that has been predicted to exist in decays of neutral charmed mesons to their cabibbo-favored and suppressed final states via the K and anti-K meson because of interference contributed by these channels of the decays. Performed statistical data-analysis to experimentally measure this asymmetry in two decay modes of a charmed meson, which is superior to previous studies.
  • Between May 2002 – Aug 2003 and May 2004 – Nov 2006, performed extensive studies in Monte Carlo simulation in High Energy Physics.
  • Worked in all aspects of the particle detector which is a state of the art electron – positron collider
  • Disseminated the results of many studies by the collaboration at KEK to the wider scientific audience.
