Teaching & Service Activities

I currently Dean of Mathematics and Physical Sciences. I have been teaching the physics section of the SAS signature course Energy and Climate Change (01:556:143) since 2009.


Research Activities
(with Ronald Gilman)

My major research focus is the MINERvA experiment at Fermilab, a high statistic neutrino experiment. My other research is centered on studies of spin physics and subnucleonic effects in light nuclei using electron beams at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (JLAB) 6 GeV accelerator, CEBAF, in Virginia. The primary goal of our experiments is to determine the basic structure of the nucleon and how that is modified in the nuclear environment. We are particularly interested in using spin degrees of freedom as a sensitive tool for probing nucleon structure. In order to study spin structure we built a large polarimeter that is mounted in the focal plane of the hadron spectrometer at CEBAF Hall A.
