Our group focuses on using tau leptons to probe for and characterize physics beyond the standard model at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider. Current projects include the search for a Z’ boson that decays to tau pairs, the search for the standard model boson produced in association with a W or Z boson (where Demers co-convenes the analysis), and a measure of tau polarization in Z boson decays. In addition, we work on the trigger for the experiment and Demers co-leads the ATLAS Data Quality Group.
