Work experience:

2006 -current.  
Prepared the Phys. Rev. Letters publication "Search for Third Generation Scalar Leptoquarks"
(published in Phys.Rev.Lett.99:061801,2007).
Working on search for SM Higgs boson using D0 data. Responsible for the development, support, and modification of the NICADD computing framework.

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

Since 1999 member of the D0 collaboration, FNAL, USA. Developed and implemented fast stub-finding algorithms for the D0 L2 muon Trigger (VME based hardware and TI DSP processors). 

Join 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.
