My research interests lie in the precision measurements of neutrino properties as probes for new physics beyond the current Standard Model of electroweak interactions. A large number of hints from recent experimental results lead me to believe that the field of neutrino physics is on the edge of an unprecedented period of new discoveries. My near-term emphasis will be on the precise measurement of neutrino oscillation parameters, neutrino mass ordering, and the potential discovery of CP violation. In the long term, I am interested in the precise measurement of all the fundamental properties of neutrinos, including whether or not they are Majorana particles. Our group is currently studying neutrinos and their properties experimentally with the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) and the Accelerator Neutrino-Neutron Interaction Experiment (ANNIE). We investigate the neutrino physics using two state-of-the-art technologies: Liquid Argon Time Projection Chambers (LArTPCs) and gadolinium-loaded water Cherenkov detectors.
