I am an experimental particle physicist interested in developing techniques and equipment to probe new physics beyond the Standard Model of Elementary Particle Physics. I am deeply involved in the Mu2e Experiment at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, IL. This project is meant to test some of the most strongly-held conservation laws of nature: conservation of electron, muon, and overall lepton number in particle interactions. At the same time, I have a strong interest in finding practical applications for particle detector technologies. I have recently become involved with health and environmental physics research. Teaching physics at the graduate and undergraduate level is of particular importance, both in broadening and deepening my investigations, and mentoring future scientists.
