My research interests
I am a junior lecturer of Queen Mary, University of London working on the T2K experiment and IceCube neutrino observatory. T2K is a long baseline neutrino oscillation experiment in Japan, sending neutirno beam from J-PARC to Super-K. IceCube is an array of PMTs covering 1km cube of ice, 1.5km under the south pole to detect high energy neutrinos from the sky. In the past, I worked on the MicroBooNE , MiniBooNE , SciBooNE , and future FINeSSE experiments, all at Fermilab. I am interested in the measurement of neutrino interactions. Also I am interested in neutrino phenomenology, especially I am interested in the test of Lorentz violation using neutrino oscillations.
I graduated Tokyo Institute of Technology for the Bachelor of Science. I got my PhD from Indiana University, under the supervision of prof. Rex Tayloe. The PhD thesis is available here. Then I did 5 years postdoc at Conrad group in MIT Laboratory for Nuclear Science before I came to Queen Mary.
- 2013 American Physics Society (APS) Henry Primakoff Award for Early-Career Particle Physics, “For outstanding contributions to a wide range of accelerator based neutrino physics, including cross section measurements and searches for violations of Lorentz and CPT symmetry.”
- 2012 International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) C11 young scientist prize, “For his outstanding contributions to accelerator-based neutrino physics including a detailed measurement of the charged-current quasi-elastic scattering process with the MiniBooNE experiment and a search for possible Lorentz invariance violation.”
This is not an exhaustive list and I would be happy to discuss other project possibilities.
