Current projects
Our field of interest is non-accelerator particle physics, including low-background techniques and astroparticle physics. Most of the research projects presently undertaken by the group are in one way or another devoted to searching for astroparticles, new or old: neutrinos, axions, and WIMPs (Weakly Interactive Massive Particles). We have a considerable number of irons into the fire, and can often accommodate new students.

News:
A COUPP is in the making: A new experimental effort to search for particle dark matter, the Chicagoland Observatory for Underground Particle Physics (COUPP) will debut at the end of summer 2004. A prototype bubble chamber sensitive to Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs), developed by our group, is to be installed in the MINOS near detector gallery at Fermilab. [more]
