Experimental Physics Researcher & Undergraduate Student at Yale University
Hello! I am a senior at Yale University majoring in Physics and particularly interested in Physics and Astrophysics research. I am looking to use my strong quantitative and statistical skills, knowledge of data analysis, scientific programming skills, as well as my innate curiosity, to gain experience working in research positions both in academia and industry settings.
Part of CUORE Collaboration, a large multinational collaboration building a ton-scale underground cryogenic detector for extremely rare nuclear events
Lowering experimental background noise for CUORE by identifying events due to hardware contamination
Expanding current thermal models by improving mathematical models and design parameters (Python)
Developing and analyzing Monte-Carlo simulations of contaminated events using particle physics toolkits (C++)
Conducted critical tasks on-site prior to commissioning and data acquisition, such as installing calibration hardware, diagnosing vacuum and cryogenic systems, assisting clean room operations, and setting up security infrastructure Developed slow monitoring systems to accurately and securely monitor the cryostat using responsive LabVIEW virtual instruments, video streams, and a custom-built web interface using Angular, Bootstrap, and MongoDB
Investigated the use of superfluid liquid helium-4 as a viable candidate for the detection of dark matter particles Developed Markov-Chain Monte Carlo simulations to create optimality conditions for detecting dark matter using energy kinematics and mathematical models (Python).
