Research Opportunities

I lead several research initiatives in machine learning in high-energy physics. Additionally, some group members contribute to open source machine learning software development.

Research group news

Sitong An started in September 2018 as an INSIGHTS Marie-Curie CERN fellow to work on machine learning applications in high-energy physics, and will simultaneously pursue his doctoral studies at Carnegie Mellon University, co-advised by Manfred Paulini.

Research opportunities

Student involvement in research is one of my research and education priorities. If you are looking for a PhD position in high-energy physics and machine learning, please get in touch with me about possible opportunities.

If you are an MS or undergraduate student looking for research opportunities in machine learning and/or particle physics and are interested in my research activities please get it touch with me about possible research projects.

My group will have a postdoctoral position opening soon.
