Research Interests: Particles from Space
Currently, my main interest is to continue working with large-scale dark matter detectors, and I am particularly interested in the COUPP experiment. Like the xenon TPCs, COUPP is designed to scale rapidly to large size, yet it faces an entirely different set of challenges. Even the dominant backgrounds are different, given COUPP's lack of energy information but enormous discrimination against electron recoils. I believe COUPP is the strongest competitor to the liquid noble element dark matter detectors.
