                I am a post-doctoral research scientist at 
                Columbia University - Nevis Laboratories. 

I received my Ph.D. in particle physics from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in September 2010. My doctoral thesis focused on the antineutrino oscillation search at MiniBooNE. This search was prompted by an earlier experiment, LSND, which provided evidence in support of sterile neutrino oscillations and was in need of confirmation.

My present work focuses on the construction of MicroBooNE. MicroBooNE’s goal is to provide an R&D base for 
next-generation neutrino oscillation experiments, and to provide an independent test of the MiniBooNE results, 
which revealed new surprises...
