As part of the LZ (LUX-ZEPELIN) collaboration, I am interested in searches beyond the vanilla WIMP. As a full member, I am also contributing towards the collaboration's main activities.
The heaps of data pouring in from observations have extraordinary power in constraining particle dark matter properties. I am interested in large and small scale structure probes using Lyman-α spectra.
Missing transverse momentum searches can constrain light particle candidates and provide a probe to a dark mediator and its coupling. I am interested in working with the novel software CONTUR.
Through my work on directional detection I found myself inspired by the fact that I can calculate the direction in which the earth is moving towards at any point in time and space. I am currently developing a kinetic structure that implements this code and shows the observer the direction from which dark matter wind is coming from.
Project lead by Dr. Andrew Pontzen and Michaela French in a collaboration between members of the Cosmoparticle Initiative and students from the RCA. This project hopes to provoke the public to respond to the unfinished ideas of cosmology and to recognise the creative struggles at the heart of modern science.
