AstrophysicistI am a Research Scientist in the Physics Department at the University of Michigan. My research is focused on understanding some of the open issues in astrophysics and cosmology. I study cosmic rays, dark energy and dark matter and I focus on how it can best be characterized using both space and ground based instruments. I have worked on numerous projects to detect and characterize cosmic rays, including the Frejus Proton Decay Detector, the Whipple TeV Gamma-Ray Telescope, and the High Energy Antimetter Telescope (HEAT). Between 2000 and 2010 I worked on the near-infrared camera for the SNAP/JDEM project.
Current Reserach projects:
- The Dark Energy Survey (DES)
- The Cosmic-Ray Electron Synchrotron Telescope (CREST)
- DESI - The Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument
- PandaX - Liquid Xenon Dark Matter Experiment
