Abstract: In this project, part of the 2015 ATLAS data from \sqrt{s} = 13 TeV proton-proton collisions was studied with the TAG Data (TADA) framework. The project also serves as a general introduction to the data analysis tools used in high-energy physics experiments. However, since the TADA data had not yet been reviewed by the ATLAS collaboration, it was omitted in this thesis. It was revealed that some of the distributions were affected by trigger biases, which were removed by implementing a kinematic cut on the events. Furthermore, modifications of some TADA scripts were performed in order to successfully run the analysis. These could be beneficial to other Lund University students.
