My area of research is the study of cosmic rays in general and neutrinos in particular, at the "particle astrophysics" junction between astronomy and experimental high energy physics. I work to extract astrophysical information from detectors designed primarily to study the properties of neutrinos in large underground facilities: especially making sure that these experiments are ready to collect the burst of neutrinos born in the core of the next massive star to explode as a Supernova somewhere in our galaxy.
