I am collaborator on the T2K long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment in Japan. This experiment is producing a beam of muon neutrinos and sending them through Japan. We detect the neutrinos in a Near Detector, and 295 km away in the Super-Kamiokande Detector. T2K has observed the disappearance of muon neutrinos and the appearance of electron neutrinos. T2K has also measured oscilations with anti-neutrinos as well, and sees hints for CP violation with neutrinos. I'm also interested in measurements of neutrino interaction cross sections in the near detector.
I'm also part of effort to design and construct the near detector of the upcoming Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment in the US. To help better predict the neutrino fluxes in manmade beams like T2K and the LBNF beam for DUNE I am part of the the NA61/SHINE experiment at CERN.
Prior to T2K, I worked at Fermilab on the MINOS long-basline neutrino oscillation experiment. My dissertation research was on solar neutrino data from the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory
