Research Interests:

  • Experimental High Energy Physics


Ph.D. 1985, University of California, Berkeley

Current Research:

Professor Gary is a member of the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at the CERN Laboratory in Geneva, Switzerland, and of the BABAR Collaboration at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. On CMS, his physics interests lie in searches for supersymmetric particles, especially in final states with bottom-quark jets and missing transverse momentum. On BABAR, his main interests are charmless hadronic decays of B mesons, to test the standard model mechanism for CP violations and to search for signatures of physics beyond the standard model through loop processes.

Professor Gary is also a member of the OPAL Collaboration at CERN and of the Coordinated Theoretical-Experimental Project on QCD (CTEQ).

Awards and Fellowships:

Professor Gary is a recipient of the Outstanding Junior Investigator Award from the US Department of Energy (1992). He is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (1999) and of the American Physical Society (2005).
