Who I am: My name is Kevin, I attend the University of South Alabama, class of 2018. I am majoring in Physics, Mathematics and Statistics with aspirations of going to graduate school and obtaining my PhD in physics. Some fun facts about me are: I am a twin, I have a grand-nephew (newly born), I like to swim and read and I can speak German.
Research: The objective of this summer research was to compare the models of energy loss present in GEANT4 simulations and analytical predictions. This is done as detectors are often tuned to Monte Carlo data, and simulations are used to find particle in actual data. Therefore, ensuring that the models at hand agree is imperative to discovery.
