Who I am: I am a rising third year majoring in physics and mathematics at University of Virginia. I started working for UVa HEP Antimatter Asymmetry group since the summer of my first year and have worked on both Mu2e and NOvA. Dreaming of being a theorist I am looking forward to getting a PhD in physics after I graduate. Besides physics, I enjoy reading and hiking.
Research: By looking at the test beam data of prototypes for mu2e CRV system, I am trying to get a better understanding of their functions. More specifically, I study the time resolution, photon yield and SiPM saturation effect of the prototypes. The results I get in analysis will help design and improve the later versions of prototypes and eventually, the CRV itself.
