Andrea Pocar

Andrea Pocar is a Professor of Physics at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. His research interests include the exploration of neutrino properties and of the nature of dark matter. In particular, he searches for neutrino-less double beta decay of Xenon-136 with the nEXO experiment, of which he chairs the Collaboration Board. He is also a member of the DarkSide collaboration searching for weakly-interating particle dark matter and the Borexino solar neutrino experiment, both at Gran Sasso. He contributes his expertise in ultra-low background detector technology to these pioneering rare-event projects. Dr. Pocar received a Laurea degree in Physics from the University of Milan, Italy, and a Ph.D. in physics from Princeton University. He begins his term with the EAC committee in February 2020.
