Neutrino Particle Physics

Current Research

Current Research:I am currently working in the neutrino particle group of Drexel University. My collaborations EXO-200 and nEXO are looking neutrinoless double beta decay, which is an extremely rare phenomenon that will give the Majorana (this means neutrino is its own antiparticle!) mass of neutrinos if observed, and set a better-than-existing limit if not observed. To do this, we have a time projection chamber filled with liquid xenon-136 isotope, which can provide 3D information about where in the chamber the events happened. My personal projects include: thermodynamics simulation of the liquid xenon in our system, converting values read off of our data acquisition hardwares to useful monitored parameters, and reconstructing the location of the observed charge clusters in our detector.
