    Physics High Energy Physics Research Interests My work focuses on the lightest known matter particles the neutrino Their number far exceeds the atoms in the universe Yet we know surprisingly little about these particles It is only recently for example that we came to realize these particles have mass albeit very tiny This became clear when neutrinos were shown to live a double life transforming from one type into another through the quantum mechanical effect of neutrino oscillations This effect requires neutrino mass Neutrino mass is the first chink in the surprisingly resilient theory of particle physics called The Standard Model The purpose of my research is to exploit this opportunity through further study of neutrinos Now that we know that neutrinos have surprising new properties I am involved in tests to see if they have more unexpected features My studies using neutrinos as probes for new physics involve the BooNE experiments The first generation of these experiments was the MiniBooNE experiment which searched for a new neutrino beyond the three types known in the Standard Model This was motivated by an oscillation result from the Liquid Scintillator Neutrino Detector LSND experiment at Los Alamos which indicated an oscillation wavelength inconsistent with other experiments perhaps pointing to the existence of a new neutrino species called the sterile neutrino MiniBooNE detected an excess of events above the Standard Model expectation However crucial differences between this result and the sterile neutrino prediction based on LSND has led us to build an even more sensitive detector MicroBooNE which is a state of the art liquid Argon time projection chamber The MicroBooNE detector and its partner experiment SBND will have bubble chamber like resolution of particle tracks This experiment will run in 2015 at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory At the same time I am
