Zeng with the CDF Detector

Prof. Ashutosh Kotwal's graduate student, Yu Zeng, has received the Universities Research Association's Visiting Scholarship for his research on the CDF experiment at Fermilab. He is pursuing the world's most precise measurement of the W boson mass. This measurement will provide a stringent test of the Higgs mechanism in the Standard Model of particle physics, even as the direct search for the Higgs boson is ongoing at LHC and Fermilab.
