I am a Postdoctoral Research Scientist at Columbia University Nevis Laboratories. My line of research is experimental neutrino physics. I am interested in developing the liquid argon time projection chamber (LArTPC) technology for precision measurements of neutrino oscillations, detection of supernova neutrinos and Beyond-Standard-Model searches, using the SBND and MicroBooNE short-baseline experiments at Fermilab, and the future long-baseline experiment DUNE.

I am the SBND Co-Deputy Manager of the TPC Readout Electronics and Manager of the TPC Back-end Electronics. I am leading the production, installation and commissioning of the TPC back-end readout electronics and the integration with the DAQ. In MicroBooNE, I am the Co-Convener of the Astroparticle and Exotic Physics Group, and the leader of an analysis of a novel continuous data stream, a non-triggered readout for the detection of core-collapse supernova neutrinos. I also led the development and commissioning of this continuous readout stream. Including on-going and past students, I have supervised the work of 3 graduate students, 2 research assistants and 3 undergraduate students.
