I'm a professor,
teaching Physics 2022
and Physics 2015 General Physics II this semester.
I do research with the
neutrino experiments. I have also worked a lot on the
(still running) and MACRO (turned off in December 2000)
Also, I'm participating in SNEWS
(Supernova Early Warning System), which is a coincidence monitor of many
neutrino experiments to provide early warning of a
supernova in our
galaxy, and am UMD's representative to the Minnesota Space Grant Consortium.
