Burton DeWilde

I am a graduate student at Stony Brook University, working on the ATLAS experiment and currently residing within eyeshot of CERN in Saint-Genis-Pouilly, France. I'm involved in R&D for the (recently-approved!) IBL upgrade to the pixel detector, with a current focus on 3D Pixels. I'm also working hard on an exotics search for second-generation scalar leptoquarks. One or both of these efforts will find their way into my not-yet-written thesis.

I grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and went to undergrad at Kalamazoo College, where I studied Physics, Spanish, and Applied Mathematics. I got into physics by way of consecutive childhood obsessions: dinosaurs -> astronauts -> Star Wars -> computer-generated physics simulations. The jump to the LHC came about naturally.

I am a cat-person, a Python-person, and in good company, a people-person.
