Search for New Physics with Dibosons in ATLAS (Cancelled)
Speaker Dr. Yee Chinn Yap, Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY)
Date 13 November 2019 (Wednesday)
Time 10:30 - 11:30
Venue (to be confirmed)

The excellent performance of the LHC and the ATLAS detector during the Run 2 enables many interesting searches and measurements to be carried out with better sensitivity and precision than ever before. The talk will present the search for new physics and precision test of the SM with neutral boson pairs at 13 TeV. Future prospects will be discussed as well.



Yee Chinn Yap is a postdoctoral research fellow at DESY in Germany. She graduated from Imperial College London where she completed her undergraduate degree in physics and then moved to Paris for her PhD at LPNHE. She started her research on the search for muon to electron conversion in the COMET experiment, and has worked in the ATLAS experiment at the LHC since 2013. She is interested in diboson processes, both in searches for new physics and in precision measurements. In her PhD, she worked on the search for high mass diphoton resonances, which was in the limelight when an excess was found near 750 GeV. After working on searches, she switched to precision measurement of  diboson cross-section where she is the analysis contact of the Zgamma measurement. In addition, she has contributed to photon performance studies and detector geometry simulation.  She’s also serving in an editorial board.
