Neutrino Physics

I'm doing research in several experiments around the world studying neutrino properties, such as neutrino oscillations and search for neutrino mass. Experiments I'm involved in are KamLAND (Japan), DoubleChooz (France), Majorana (USA). It is an interesting and quickly progressing branch of science at the crossroads of particle physics and astrophysics.

One can get flavor on what is going on in the field from the Neutrino Oscillation Industry Web site at:
