My research is fully focused on DUNE (the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment), which utilizes a neutrino beam produced at Fermilab, near Chicago. That beam will be characterized at Fermilab using the Near Detector, and the beam continues on to SURF (the Sanford Underground Research Facility) in South Dakota where a much larger detector, the Far Detector, will also measure neutrino interactions. I am currently working with colleagues at CSU to bring up a small prototype of the Near Detector. My physics interests on DUNE are in ideas of outside of the Standard Model of particle physics, including the possibility that dark matter could be produced in the neutrino beam at Fermilab along with the neutrinos.
