Sciolla Lab Web Page
Professor Sciolla and her team work on the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. Research topics include the measurement of the properties of the Higgs Boson and the search for new and exotic particles such as Dark Matter particles, Z’, and Gravitons. In addition, Sciolla’s team is very active in the ATLAS muon reconstruction and performance group.
