Areas of Expertise:
  • Experimental Particle Physics
  • Data Acquisition
  • Data Analysis
My main field of research is precision muon physics. I have been involved in high precision measurements of the free muon lifetime (MuLan), as well as the capture rate of negative muons on protons (MuCap) and deuterons (MuSun). My current research projects include two precision measurements at the Fermi Accelerator Laboratory outside Chicago: a precision measurement of the muon's anomalous magnetic moment (muon g-2) and a search for muon to electron conversion (Mu2e). My areas of technical expertise include simulation, distributed computing for data acquisition, data acquisition electronics and systems, and data analysis on large physics data sets. I have dabbled in particle physics detector development and vacuum system design, and hope to expand my work in these areas in the future.
