Experimental nuclear & particle physics. I am working in the field of experimental medium energy nuclear physics. Most of my work is based on experiments conducted the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (TJNAF, www.jlab.org) in Newport News, Virginia, which are exploring how quarks interact to form the protons and neutrons making up matter. I am also exploring how quarks form exotic particles, i.e. those we do not usually see.
My work is experimental, which means I am working on designing & building detectors, configuring data acquisition systems, and modelling & analyzing data using custom software.
