About

My research interests are focused on high-energy (particle) physics, specifically related to neutrino physics and particle astrophysics. My group is involved in the measurement of neutrino interactions with the NOvA experiment as well as detector development and computing projects for DUNE. I also have a strong interest in high-performance computing in high-energy physics and I am a member of the SciDAC4 HEP Data Analytics Collaboration.
