Research Interests 

The unifying goal of my research is to understand the universe at the most fundamental level, an objective which is perhaps overly ambitious but certainly challenging.  I currently am a collaborator on the PICO experiment which is located at SNOLAB and searching for dark matter.  PICO currently leads the world in sensitivity to dark matter colliding with the proton in a spin-dependent interaction.  I also work with the IceCube collaboration studying low-energy neutrinos at the South Pole and am particularly invested in the proposed PINGU sub-detector which will increase our sensitivity to potential dark matter interactions. 


Some selected publications:
