I am primarily interested in the intersection between theoretical particle physics and modern machine learning methods. How can we use machine learning to understand particle physics, and how can we use particle physics to understand machine learning?

Search for bottom-type, vectorlike quark pair production in a fully hadronic final state in proton-proton collisions at s= 13 TeV

The CMS Collaboration

December 2020

Physical Review D 102 (11), 112004

We search for evidence of Vector-Like Quark (VLQ) production in the CMS Detector of the Large Hadron Collider's entire second run, and set (as of publication) the highest mass limits on VLQ hadronic decays
