DPhil in Particle Physics

Understanding neutrino interactions is critical to determine the neutrino energy and the incoming flux in neutrino oscillation measurements.

My research is to model the details of the neutrino interactions, including developing numerical simulations of initial-and final-state effects, integrating new 2p2h mechanisms, and producing predictions for neutrino resonant productions. It involves theoretical analysis and model building, software programming and data mining on MINERvA data, and detector optimization of the HPTPC at the DUNE experiment.

The aim of my research is to improve the understanding of neutrino interactions and enhance the discovery potential of the DUNE experiment.
