Dr. Manuel GUTH awarded the ATLAS Thesis Award - 2021 Edition
Manuel Guth now postdoc at DPNC in the group of Tobias Golling received for his PhD thesis, the 2021 ATLAS thesis award (thesis at Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg & Université Paris-Saclay).
He searched for ttH(bb) production & developed quark flavour tagging with deep learning.
The topic in short:
Search for ttH(bb) Production in the Lepton + Jets Channel and Quark Flavour Tagging with Deep Learning at the ATLAS Experiment
The heavy flavour-tagging, which is an important tool for the majority of ATLAS analyses, was improved by up to a factor two with machine learning techniques originally developed in Geneva.
Further, the ttH(bb) process, important to access the Top-Yukawa coupling, was studied by measuring the inclusive signal strength as well as in different Higgs pT bins.
