I currently am working on the search for the Higgs boson decaying into a Z boson and a photon as a part of the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). I have been involved in various aspects of the analysis, but find the work done optimizing the search for different production modes of the Higgs to be most interesting. I have also been involved with the upgrades to the optical data acquisition motherboards (ODMBs) for the Cathode Strip Chamber detector (CSCs). This work will help the CSC detector meet the high data rates needed for the high luminosity LHC (HL-LHC).
