I joined the SNO+ Collaboration in June 2013. SNO+ is a neutrino experiment located 6800 feet below ground at the Creighton Mine in Sudbury, Ontario. It has diverse physics goals, foremost being the search for neutrinoless double beta decay of Te-130. The Chicago team, led by Professor Edward Blucher, is responsible primarily for the detector monitoring and level two trigger systems.
While at Swarthmore, I wrote a Senior Thesis on the subject of Lorentz-symmetry violating models of neutrino oscillation, under the direction of Professor Matthew Mewes. I also spent a summer in the laboratory of Professor Mike Brown, building probes, following which I spent a summer at Princeton Plasma Physics Lab, working on the Magnetic Reconnection Experiment.
