Experimental neutrino physics at Carnegie Mellon University

Courses Taught at CMU

  • 33-232, Mathematical Methods for Physicists (Spring 2019). Course website on Canvas.

Guest Lectures in Pittsburgh (2017 -)

May 5, 2017: Guest lecture on KATRIN for CMU's 33-444 course (Introduction to Nuclear and Particle Physics), taught by Prof. James Russ.

April 27, 2017: Guest lecture on neutrino physics for Duquesne University's PHYS 482 course (Particle Physics), taught by Prof. Fatiha Benmokhtar.

February 14, 2017: I was priviliged to give a lecture in the CMU Physics Department's sophomore colloquium, 33-202, on low-energy nuclear and particle physics. Specific examples were drawn from current experimental work in direct neutrino mass measurements, neutrinoless double-beta decay searches, and neutron-lifetime measurements.

University of Washington: Physics 585 (2015-6)

I taught a one-credit ungraded graduate seminar course in experimental nuclear physics at the University of Washington for two quarters. In Fall 2015, in conjunction with course numbers 427 and 576B, the course focused on direct and indirect searches for dark matter (course website available here). In Spring 2016, the course focused on neutrino physics, from mass to mixing and from the center of the Earth to the most distant supernovae. (course website here).
