About

My research has been focused on understanding how to utilize the LArTPC (Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber) technology for precision neutrino physics, with an emphasis on detector calibration and R&D of cryogenic electronics. I am participating in several LArTPC accelerator neutrino experiments, namely MicroBooNE (Micro Booster Neutrino Experiment), the SBN (Short-Baseline Neutrino) program, and DUNE (Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment), all of which utilize neutrino beams produced at Fermilab near Chicago, Illinois. The physics goals of these experiments include searching for a hypothetical particle known as a "sterile neutrino" and determining if neutrinos are responsible for the matter-antimatter asymmetry in the universe.
