ATLAS Summer Student,
I attended DESY’s summer student programme where I worked as a researcher in the ATLAS group. I investigated the Boosted Decision Tree based classification used to distinguish top-associated Higgs production events from background. It was found that the analysis could be significantly improved with the introduction of b-tagging variables.
