Research Interests

Finn Rebassoo's doctoral thesis was on a supersymmetry search at the CMS detector at the Large Hadron Collider, and Rebassoo's research interests are in experimental high energy particle physics, including collider physics, direct detection of dark matter, and neutrino physics. Rebassoo is currently working on data analysis of very forward electroweak processes at the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider and is assisting with the design and production of the CMS High Precision Spectrometer subdetector, which consists of new forward proton detectors 240m down the beamline from the CMS central detector.
