Professional experience (CV - including publications, short version - NSF format) :

Since 2009 member of the ATLAS collaboration, CERN, Switzerland. Developed and supported computing clusters for ATLAS data analysis at NIU and California State University (Fresno). In 2011-2014 developed the linux-based Back-End DAQ system (~2500 data channels) for the Phase II pCT scanner now operating using the CDH proton therapy beam. In 2015 joined the Mu2e experiment at Fermilab (cosmic ray veto system and extinction monitor DAQ).

2007-2010 In 2007-2008 coordinator of the NIU/Delhi University group for search of new particles using D0 data (including standard model Higgs boson in ZH channel). With the D0 New Phenomena and Higgs groups conducted (2008-2010) "Search for scalar bottom quarks and third-generation leptoquarks" using 5.2 fb-1 dataset. Participated in the development of the data acquisition framework (beam tests) for the detector prototype for future electron-positron International Linear Collider (2007).

Since 2002 work for Northern Illinois Center for Accelerator and Detector Development (NICADD).  Developed the computational cluster for the NICADD Detector and Accelerator groups ($200000 project). Conducted analysis of the D0 data: "A Search for Charge 1/3 Third Generation Leptoquarks In Muon Channels" ( Ph.D, NIU, 2006). Prepared  the Phys. Rev. Letters publication "Search for Third Generation Scalar Leptoquarks".

Since 1999 member of the D0 collaboration, FNAL, USA. Developed and implemented fast muon track-finding algorithms for the  D0 L2 muon Trigger (VME based hardware and TI DSP processors), The Level-2 Muon Trigger at D0, IEEE Trans. Nucl. Sci. 49, 1589 (2002)

Member of CMS collaboration at the European Laboratory for Particle Physics (CERN), Switzerland. Study/design of the Very Forward calorimeter module.

MIS ITEP experiment, Institute for High Energy Physics, Protvino, Russia. Calibrating and installing the electromagnetic calorimeter for the experiment. Worked out the algorithm for analysis of calorimeter information, coded and tested it.
