Lily Asquith's (ex) Web Page

Update (2014) Lily has now moved to Sussex. Webpage is still rubbish.

Update (2010) Lily has moved to Argonne, where she has an equally unstimulating webpage.

I am a PhD student at UCL, working on the search for a low mass Higgs boson which we expect (according to the Standard Model of Particle Physics) to see with the ATLAS detector at CERN when it starts running (10th September 2008; see here for news..).

The Higgs channel I am working on is called ttH(H->bb), which means a Higgs boson is produced in association with a top quark and anti-top quark, and the higgs then decays to a bquark and anti b-quark.
Here is a Feynman diagram of this channel.
There is an excellent video here explaining what a Higgs boson is.
The UCL analysis is publicly available as an Athena package in cvs and there is a wiki page here describing the package.
