Muhammad Alhroob

Muhammad Alhroob is a Palestinian postdoctoral fellow at the University of Oklahoma, Norman, USA. He joined ATLAS in 2006 right after he fished his diploma from the International Center for Theoretical Physics, Trieste, Italy. He started his PhD study at the University of Bonn, Germany. He looked for he single top quark production through flavour changing neutral current, which is predicted to have an extremely small production rate. Currently, he is working on the production of single top quark in association to Z boson. Muhammad is also involved pixel detector activities and is heavily involved in ATLAS and CERN outreach programs.

A busy day in the life of high energy physicist

My work involves analyzing data to try to understand how nature works at the most fundamental level, by searching for new particles and ways in which they interact. Specifically, I am looking at the top quark, which is the heaviest fundamental particle known to exist, with a mass of about 180 times that of a proton.
