Project Description

I'm working with the SuperCDMS collaboration on the search for dark matter. SuperCDMS uses germanium and silicon crystal detectors to search for the direct detection of dark matter interacting with the crystals. My current focus is on the preparations for the data acquisition (DAQ) system for the next generation of detectors to be operated in SNOLAB Underground Laboratory in Ontario, Canada. I am also working on data analysis from the previous generation of SuperCDMS detectors that were operated in Soudan Underground Laboratory, MN, USA.
