Bio

After developing inquiry based, active learning courses for students to develop skills needed for later learning in my graduate education research, I am always excited to help students learn in any way possible.

My interests in experimental physics began with questions like: Why is there matter instead of anti-matter in the universe? What happened in the early formation of the universe for everything to unfold the way it did? How precisely can we describe our observations and what can we learn beyond what we think we know? My colleagues and I try to answer these questions using fundamental precision experiments using low energy neutrons. These experiments include correlations of the decay products in neutron decay (which can test the standard model and beyond), studying mirror (parity) and time reversal symmetry breaking with cold neutrons, and measuring the neutron lifetime.

Projects for students include computation for various analysis and simulation tasks for detailed studies of systematic effects in these experiments, as well as developing hardware which can be tested and characterized here at EKU and in some cases be used at national labs for large scale experiments.
