Jeff completed his Ph.D. in 2017 at Northwestern University, where he worked with André de Gouvêa on neutrino and dark matter phenomenology. After his first postdoc at Virginia Tech working with Patrick Huber, he joins N3AS at the University of Kentucky with local mentor Susan Gardner.
Jeff’s primary research interests include various aspects of neutrino phenomenology. He has worked on understanding how reactor antineutrinos fit into the broader neutrino landscape, including (1) their compatibility with cosmology regarding sterile neutrinos, and (2) how other kinds of new physics could appear in these experiments. He is also interested in the physics of dark matter, particularly as it relates to neutrino masses and interactions.
