Research Interests:

    My research interest is in astroparticle physics, with focus on high energy cosmic rays, dark matter search, muon and cosmogenic backgrounds, rediological and airborne contamination control. I have worked for many years on the high-energy neutrino astronomy project IceCube at the South Pole. I am currently also working on the direct dark matter search experiment Large Underground Xenon (LUX) experiment (deployed at 4850 ft level in the Sanford Underground Research Facility, SURF), and involved in the long-baseline neutrino project LBNF/DUNE.

    The links to those projects are:
  • IceCube: High Energy Neutrino Astronomy at the South Pole, Antarctica. (AMANDA/SPASE/RICE South-Pole winter-over scientist 1998 - 1999, Member between August 2002 - December 2009, Publication Committee Member 2007 - 2010, associate member between January 2010 - March 2014, full member since March 2014.)
  • LUX Dark Matter Search Experiment in Sanford Lab, Homestake Lead, SD (Member & Executive Committee Member since July 2009. Also a member of the LZ project.)
  • The Long-Baseline Neutrino Experiment (Radiological & Cleanliness Convenor between April 2012 - March 2014, member & institutional representative, March 2010 - present)
