Research

My research is centered around understanding the behavior of the neutrino, one of the fundamental sub-atomic particles. Neutrinos are a particle produced in the Weak decay of other particles. Neutrinos are electrically neutral, have only a small mass, and interact only via the Weak Interaction. The interactions of neutrinos in matter are so weak, on average a neutrino from the sun can travel through a light-year long brick of lead without being absorbed. Read More
