BS Physics ’20, Honors

Philip first began his research during the STAR Scholars program working on the development of solid xenon bolometers with Prof. Michelle Dolinski and continues to do so. For his first and third co-ops, he worked at MIT with Prof. Janet Conrad and Dr. Daniel Winklehner on developing computational methods to improve cyclotron beam injection devices and on the construction of a high-current ion source for the IsoDAR experiment. During his second co-op, he worked with the LZ group at Stanford on a xenon purification system for the purpose of low background dark matter searches. Philip plans to continue his research and pursue a PhD in Physics, focusing on experimental particle physics.
