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.
