Research
Danielle Norcini received her Ph.D. from the Wright Laboratory at Yale University in particle/nuclear physics. She helped lead the R&D and construction of the PROSPECT detector to measure neutrinos at very short distances from a nuclear reactor in a challenging background environment. Her thesis details a search for sterile neutrino oscillations and the world-leading measurement of the uranium-235 antineutrino energy spectrum. As a KICP and Grainger fellow, she plans to develop instruments to measure astrophysical neutrinos and other cosmic particles, probing fundamental physics and cosmology.
