Thématique : Physique des particules

The LHCb experiment at the LHC collider at CERN is designed to study decays of heavy-flavour particles. The goal of LHCb is to perform precision measurements of the parameters of the Standard Model of particle physics and to search for the processes beyond it.

Particle identification, the ability to reliably determine the various species of long-lived charged and neutral particles, is the crucial feature for most of LHCb studies. The student will participate in the development of novel approaches to particle identification and precise measurement of its performance using state-of-the-art machine learning techniques.
