Overview

Professor Goshaw current research is focused on the study of Nature's most massive particles, the W and Z bosons (carriers of the weak force) and the top quark (discovered in 1994). These studies have been carried out using 1.96 TeV proton-antiproton collisions provided by Fermilab's Tevatron, and analyzed using the CDF detector. Current studies concentrate on measurements of the tri-linear coupling among the photon, W boson and Z boson, as tests of the non-abelian character of the electroweak force carriers.

His research in the next five years will be focused on searches for phenomena beyond those predicted by the Standard Model, using precision measurements of the production of high energy photons, leptons and penetrating neutral particles such as neutrinos. In 2012, this research will be carried out at the high energy frontier using the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.
