Associate Professor, Dept. of Physics, Queen's

(on sabbatical at Institut Lumière-Matière, France)

Activities

My main activities revolve around the SuperCDMS experiment which seeks to discover the elusive WIMPs that may make up the bulk of the matter in the Universe.  SuperCDMS intends to move to SNOLAB, the deepest and cleanest underground laboratory in the world.  I also carry out R&D on cryogenic detectors and their applications.
