Welcome! We work on the direct detection of dark matter through its (as yet unobserved) interactions with standard-model target particles in the lab, typically atomic nuclei. We are developing new detector technologies using liquid noble-element targets.

Our group is part of the Amherst Center for Fundamental Interactions, and our laboratory is rooms 066 and 068 in the Physical Sciences Building.
