My current activities center around three programs that use neutrinos as probes and probe the properties of neutrinos:
MiniBooNE - Booster Neutrino Oscillation Experiment at Fermilab
A muon neutrino to electron neutrino neutrino oscillation experiment using muon neutrinos produced with the 8 GeV booster. Experiment will make a definitive test of the LSND observation at Los Alamos.
Please see the MiniBooNE Web site for more details:
Double Chooz Reactor Neutrino Experiment
Using electron antineutrinos from the Chooz nuclear reactor in northern France, this experiment will explore neutrino oscillations involving the unknown mixing angle, q13.
Measurement of this mixing angle is crucial for taking the next step in neutrino oscillations physics and for trying to understand the masses, mixings and possible CP violation effects.

NuTeV - Neutrino Experiment at the TeVatron
Experiment to study the neutrino interactions using a high-energy sign-selected beam
- Measure the weak mixing angle with precision comparable to collider experiments
- Determine the quark structure of the nucleon (protons and neutrons) including strangeness.
- Search for long-lived neutral heavy particles.
Please see the NuTeV Web site for more details:
