Research Interests:

    My research interest is in astroparticle physics, with focus on high energy muon detection and physics, high-energy cosmic rays, neutrino astronomy, and dark matter search. I am currently working on the high-energy neutrino astronomy experiment IceCube at the South Pole, and involved in the Long-Baseline Neutrino Experiment (LBNE), the direct dark matter search experiment Large Underground Xenon (LUX) experiment (deployed at 4850 feet level in the Sanford Underground Research Facility) and LZ.

    The links to those projects are:
  • IceCube: High Energy Neutrino Astronomy at the South Pole, Antarctica. (member, 2000-2009; publication committee member, 2007-2010; associate member, 2010-2014; member, 2014-present)
  • Long-Baseline Neutrino Experiment (member and institutional representative, 2010-present; radiological & cleanliness convener 2011-2013)
  • LUX/LZ Dark Matter Search Experiment in Sanford Lab, Homestake Lead, SD (member, institutional representative and executive committee member, 2009-present)

Teaching Since 2009 Fall

  • 2014 Spring Course Materials
  • TA positions for general physics labs are available for each semester. Please contact physics secretary Mrs. Connie Krosschell (Connie.Krosschell@sdsmt.edu, 605-394-2361) for details.
