Active projects
CMS Tracker commissioning and performance assessment
Florian Bury, Pieter David, Christophe Delaere

The CMS silicon strip tracker is the largest device of its type ever built. There are 24244 single-sided micro-strip sensors covering an active area of 198m2.
Physics performance of the detector are being constantly assessed and optimized as new data comes.
Members of UCL are playing a major role in the understanding of the silicon strip tracker and in the maintenance and development of the local reconstruction code.

External collaborators: CMS tracker collaboration.
Properties of ttW production
Anna Benecke, Pieter David, Andrea Giammanco, Tu Thong Tran

We take advantage of the large statistics being recorded by the CMS experiment in Run 2 to launch a systematic study of cross section, angular asymmetries and other properties in the ttW process, which have a potentially large sensitivity to non-SM effects.
In synergy with the CP3 phenomenology group, we aim at reporting our results in a form that can be easily translated in EFT constraints.

External collaborators: Didar Dobur and her team in UGent.
