Johannesis a junior physics student minoring in mathematics, computer science and data science. Johannes started his research career with PROSPECT, a reactor antineutrino experiment, under Dr. Russell Neilson. He spent his first co-op designing a simulation for light pulse data sets and working on PMT timing analysis for calibration of the PROSPECT detector. For his second co-op he worked on data analysis and hardware for Prof. Neilson’s other project PICO, a dark matter direct detection experiment. He is currently on his final co-op at Michigan State University, where he is performing astrophysical source analysis using “big data” filtration techniques and machine learning for the IceCUBE experiment under Prof. Claudio Kopper. Johannes plans to pursue a PhD in physics, focusing on computational particle physics.
