Higgs boson physics: I'm currently co-convener of the Higgs physics group of the ATLAS experiment with Marumi Kado. I was in charge of the subgroup responsible for Higgs decays to pairs of W bosons with Biagio Di Micco in 2012 and 2013. I was involved in the discovery of the Higgs boson where I contributed to the WW analysis and was an editor of the ATLAS discovery paper. Our group in Toronto is currently involved in a number of analyses involving the decay of the Higgs boson to pairs of W bosons in the ggH, VH, VBF, and ttH production channels.
