I am a member of the SuperK and T2K experiments, which study neutrinos generated from the sun, in the upper atmosphere and from an intense human-made neutrino beam. The study of neutrinos enables us to understand mysteries about the universe such as why there is more matter than anti-matter. Neutrinos can help with this by potentially exhibiting CP violation, which manifests in a measured difference in the properties of neutrinos and anti-neutrinos. Currently T2K is beginning to study anti-neutrinos, which will lead to interestinteresting results in the near future. My interests are using advanced statistical techniques to make optimum use of our data to extract the most sensitivity to the physics parameters we measure, along with improving the detector reconstruction algorithms to enhance our physics reach.
