Sergei Chekanov


Dr. Sergei Chekanov is a scientist working in the field of high-energy particle physics at the Large Hadron Collider, the largest experiment in the world.


Dr. Sergei Chekanov is an ANL scientist working in the field of high-energy particle physics (HEP). His current experiment is ATLAS  at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN.  In the past he was a member of the ZEUS experiment  experiment at DESY (1998-2009) and the L3 experiment  at LEP at CERN (1995-1998).

He contributed to experiments with >1200 publications. He is the primary author of  over a hundred professional articles and two books.  The list of publications can be found in https://​orcid​.org/​0000​-​0001​-​7314​-7247.

In the past Dr. Chekanov had various responsibilities, such as a convener of the QCD Group (ZEUS/HERA, 2001-2008), HEP computing group leader (2008-2014), responsible for operation of calorimeters (ZEUS barrel preshowers, ATLAS TileCal), computer/analysis support for the ATLAS analysis support center at U.S. midwest institutes,  jet physics, ATLAS event display coordinator, jet software validation and other.

Dr. Chekanov’s preferred physics areas of interest include (but are not limited to) : QCD data analysis, physics beyond the Standard Model, physics performance of future HEP experiments, and design of software for current and future experiments.
