Research

          My primary efforts deal with the estimation of Earths geoneutrino flux.  Specifically I am involved with estimations of the local crustal geoneutrino signal at detectors in Canada, Japan, and China.   My current work and thesis will involve better estimation of the total crustal geoneutrino signal.
