My research interests

I am a lecturer of Queen Mary University of London working on the T2K experiment and the IceCube neutrino observatory. T2K is a long baseline neutrino oscillation experiment in Japan, sending neutrino beam from J-PARC to Super-K. IceCube is a 1km cubic volume neutrino telescope in Antarctica, to detect high energy neutrinos from the sky. In the past, I had worked on the MicroBooNE , MiniBooNE , SciBooNE , and future FINeSSE experiments, all at Fermilab.

I have 2 main interests, one is the neutrino interaction physics around 1-10 GeV. This is the energy region critical for current and future oscillation experiment, and there is a significant effort to improve our understanding of neutrino-nucleus scatterings in this energy range. I am a member of NuSTEC (Neutrino Scattering Theory-Experiment Collaboration) and we coordinate workshops, conferences, and schools on neutrino interaction physics. Also, I am interested in neutrino phenomenology, especially I am interested in the test of Lorentz violation using neutrino mixings.

My background

I graduated from Tokyo Institute of Technology for the Bachelor of Science. I got my PhD from Indiana University, under the supervision of prof. Rex Tayloe. The PhD thesis is available here. Then I did 5 years postdoc at Conrad group in MIT Laboratory for Nuclear Science before I came to Queen Mary.
