I am an experimental elementary 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 and muon number in particle interactions. I have a strong interest in finding practical applications for particle detector technologies. This has led me to join the Plasma Electro-Energetic Physics research group sponsored by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research; the focus of my work is to develop techniques doing cosmic ray muon tomography. Teaching physics at the graduate and undergraduate level is of particular importance to me, both in broadening and deepening my investigations, and mentoring future scientists.
