I am currently active on three different neutrino experiments, all at different stages in their life cycles. I am fascinated by neutrinos and how they can change flavors as they propagate through space and time. To measure these changes precisely we need to understand how neutrinos interact inside the nucleus (and how that changes as a function of the nucleus).
Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE)
Focus: Liquid Argon Near Detector
Tokai to Kamioka (T2K)
Focus: Proton beam measurements using the Optical Transition Monitor and Neutrino interaction measurements to improve oscillation measurements.
Focus: Collaboration leadership (co-spokesperson) and measuring neutrino cross sections
I am currently developing a new course on "Special Topics in Particle Physics" which will focus on a selection of experiments that feature participation by Canadian institutions.
