My PhD dissertation focuses on the nuclear structure of neutron deficient nuclei near Z=82 shell gap using g-ray and a-decay measurements produced in heavy-ion induced reactions. My post-doctoral research involved the studies of the properties of neutrinos produced in the sun and the nuclear reactor. The associated experiments are the SNO and Double Chooz experiments.
My current research objective focuses on physics of neutrinos and rare-event s. It is a research field of great interest and excitement due to the recent discovery of non-zero neutrino mass and its oscillating properties. These properties are fundamental constants and measuring them will further enhance our understanding of physics. I'm currently with the LBNE experiment (Homestake, SD), a long baseline neutrino experiment tasked with the measuring of the remaining neutrino properties.
