The Cal Lutheran Experience

My work enables me to remain a student, which helps me connect with my students. I think it brings authenticity to what I’m trying to do in the classroom – how can I ask them to work hard and to be enthused about learning if I don’t model that myself?

The best moment in a math project comes when you finally understand why a technique or line of reasoning works after a long struggle with the idea. Encouraging a student to persevere and then giving them a high-five for resolving the difficulty is one of my highlights of working with student researchers.

My research was in the area of neutrino physics, in association with the MicroBooNE collaboration at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. I was interested in coming up with a function to describe the optical response of a photomultiplier tube while submerged in liquid argon. This function would aid in reducing simulation time for MicroBooNE. From this project, I learned how to design and construct a small scale experiment, collect and analyze data, and produce a talk and scientific paper on my findings.
