BS Electrical Engineering ’20, Honors


Philip is an electrical engineering student minoring in physics. Philip first began his research during the STAR Scholars program working on the development of solid xenon bolometers with Prof. Michelle Dolinski. He continues to work with Prof. Dolinski on simulations of liquid noble gas purity monitors. For his first co-op, he worked at MIT under Prof. Janet Conrad and Dr. Daniel Winklehner. At MIT, he worked on the development of computational methods to improve cyclotron beam injection devices and the construction of a high-current ion source for the IsoDAR experiment. For his second co-op, he will be working at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory at Stanford University on a xenon purification system for the LUX-ZEPLIN dark matter experiment. Philip plans to continue his research and pursue a PhD in Physics, focusing on the experimental side of elementary particle physics.
