I'm a graduate student in the Columbia University
Past and Current Research
In June 2002, I graduated from Massachusetts Institute of Technology with a SB. My undergraduate thesis work was done with data from Super-Kamiokande.
From September 2002 until June 2003, I worked at KEK on the K2K
experiment, specifically with the SciFi group there, while supported as a MIT Japan Program intern. I am now
permanently at Fermilab, working on the MiniBooNE experiment, with a particular interest in cross sections.

Summary talk for Janet Conrad's class
"The future of neutrino physics" 5/04
(The class gave talks on different aspects of neutrino physics, and in the final class they decided what was most important to them for the future of neutrino physics)
Colloquim given at Vassar in 11/04 on neutrino physics.
General information about how to get into, and survive, graduate school in physics. (I visited Amherst, Smith, Mt Holyoke and Wellsley and gave a talk half on neutrino physics, half on graduate school tips in the fall of 2004)(pdf)
Talk on MiniBooNE given at CAM2005, a conference for graduate students (pdf)
Poster on low energy cross sections with MiniBooNE, SciBar, given at NuInt05, a neutrino interaction conference (pdf)
