My research focuses on the experimental study of neutrinos, and more particularly on the phenomenon of neutrino oscillations, where a neutrino produced in a given flavor can be later observed to interact as a neutrino of another flavor. This phenomenon could also violate CP symmetry, in which case neutrinos and anti-neutrinos would oscillate differently.

Most of my work has been done in the Tokai to Kamioka (T2K) experiment, in which a beam of muon neutrinos is produced in the J-PARC center on the East coast of Japan and sent to the Super-Kamiokande detector in the Gifu prefecture to study neutrino oscillations. I have been working on the near detectors construction and operation, as well as on analysis of T2K data to measure some of the parameters of the PMNS model, describing neutrino oscillations.
