Graduate Research Assistant, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Illinois, Jan. 2009 - present.
o Guest Appointment at Brookhaven National Laboratory, New York,Sept 2010 - present.
§ Performed particle detector installation, integration and optimization with 10 MHz data acquisition and 10kV high voltage; member of the PHENIX collaboration at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC)
§ Developed software for remote detector monitoring and operation used by collaboration; executed collaboration-wide semi-online raw data processing for detector monitoring and fast analysis.
§ Led group of 10 graduate and undergraduate students in large-scale detector assembly. Performed work planning and quality control. Detector assembled within mechanical tolerances, now installed in PHENIX.
§ Optimized team-work, interpersonal and negotiation skills through scheduling and conserving secure detector operation in high-pressure environment of 50+ people, defined by $2M/week particle collider operation.
§ Suggested radiation shielding based on quantitative analysis of detector performance. Shielding installed by BNL department, significant contribution to accomplish proposed funding physics goals for PHENIX.

§ PhD thesis: Precision measurement of charged particle production in electron-positron annihilations. Advisor: Associate Professor M. Grosse Perdekamp, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
§ Applied analytic, statistical and algebraic tools, computer modeling, quantitative complex problem solving. Developed novel analysis techniques from creative/intuitive guidance, adopted by collaborators.
§ Performed large-scale data analysis (~300TB) at the Belle experiment at KEK, Japan. Complex, multi-year analysis objective: Largely autonomous identification/fulfillment of short-/long-term milestone schedule.
§ Acquired detailed understanding of wide physical theory context of measurement. Development of theoretical models and verification of models with measured/generated data.
§ Successful writing of summary reports of multi-year analysis; publications in peer-reviewed journals.
§ Analysis framework/computing environment training and review of publications/talks of collaborators.
§ Experience in speaking to diverse audiences in talks and facility/equipment tours (high school/undergraduate/ graduate students), conveying complex contents to non-expert audiences.
