Dr. Ken Clark
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:
- PINGU: A Vision for Neutrino and Particle Physics at the South Pole, The IceCube-Gen 2 Collaboration, Submitted arXiv: 1607.02671
