I am an experimental elementary particle physicist. My interests lie in developing techniques and equipment to probe new physics beyond the Standard Model of Elementary Particle Physics. I am a founding collaborator of the Mu2e Experiment at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, IL. This project tests one of the most strongly held conservation laws of nature: conservation of electron and muon number in particle interactions. I am also interested in finding new applications for particle detector technologies, which led me to join the Plasma Electro-Energetic Physics research group sponsored by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research.
