Raymond Brock

I have been a member of the Department of Physics since 1982 during which time I have concentrated my research towards experimental tests of the Standard Model. During the early 1980's I was a member of the Fermilab neutral current neutrino experiment E594 and was spokesperson of experiment E733. I was an original member of the DØ collaboration and the co-convenor of the first W mass physics group. Currently, I work with student Jorge Benitez on the production of single top quarks in p-pbar collisions.

I am also a member of the MSU ATLAS group. During the 1990's, I was the convenor of the first ATLAS single top group and led the preparation of the ATLAS Single Top Physics TDR preparation. More recently, I have concentrated on the creation of an ATLAS Tier 2 computing center with the University of Michigan: "ATLAS GREAT LAKES - TIER 2," AGL-T2. I am also continuing with the MSU ATLAS group on single top quark production and in particular trigger performance.

I have participated in various excursions into phenomenological projects, notably the resummed contributions to Drell-Yan production of W and Z bosons and NLO contributions to single top quark production at the Tevatron.

I was priveleged to be chairperson of the Department of Physics and Astronomy from 1992-2000 and was recently elected Vice-chair of the Division of Particles and Fields of the American Physical Society which will evolve to the Division Chair responsibility in 2010. I am a Fellow of the APS.
