Scientific Interest

My scientific interest currently focuses on long-baseline neutrino oscillations. I am a member of the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE), where I harness Fermilab’s powerful computing infrastructure to simulate thousands of potential neutrino beam designs and identify those most suited for discovering CP violation in the neutrino sector.

I am co-spokesperson of the MINERvA experiment, which makes precision measurements of neutrino interactions with matter. These measurements will improve the precision of future long-baseline oscillation measurements and also offer a unique view of nuclear structure.

Prior to working in neutrino physics, I was a PhD student on the CLEO experiment, where I studied semileptonic decays of D mesons as a test Lattice QCD. I have also worked on the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment in Switzerland.

I am also currently chair of the Fermilab Student Internships in Science and Technology (SIST) program.
